Vehicular Cloud Computing


Mobile Cloud Computing is a new field of research that aims to study mobile agents (people, vehicles, robots) as they interact and collaborate to sense the environment, process the data, propagate the results and more generally share resources. Mobile agents collectively operate as Mobile Clouds that enable environment modeling, content discovery, data collection and dissemination and other mobile applications in a way not possible, or not efficient, with conventional Internet Cloud models and mobile computing approaches. In this paper, we discuss design principles and research issues in mobile cloud computing. We then focus on the Mobile Vehicular Cloud and review cloud applications ranging from urban sensing to intelligent transportation.
