The automotive industry is undergoing major transformation, with the emergence of vehicular networks, intelligent transportation systems, and autonomous cars over the last decade. These technologies are made possible by recent advances of software, hardware, and communication systems, along with the development of various applications and standards. Today, new technologies are incorporated into cars that detect potential road hazards and improve the driving experience. There are three key components being integrated into cars: sensors, information systems, and communication technologies to create connected vehicle networks. Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication is being used in connected networks to reduce traffic congestion, improve passengers’ safety, and enable the efficient management of vehicles on roads. Here, we present recent research developments and current trends in V2V communications. We discuss architectural issues and wireless technologies that support V2V. We also present recently proposed security solutions for V2V. Finally, we discuss outstanding challenges for enabling the deployment and adoption of V2V technology.
