Abstract

The vehicle ad hoc network (VANET) is an emerging network technology that is expected to be cost-effective and adaptable, making it ideal to provide network connection service to drivers and passengers on today’s roads. In the next generation of VANETs with fifth-generation (5G) networks, software-defined networking (SDN) technology will play a very important role in network management. However, high vehicle mobility and unstable communication links in VANETs imposes a great challenge for network management. In this talk, I will first give an overview of VANETs and SDN technologies. Then I introduce our recent works which propose optimizing strategies to balance several requirements such as latency, cost, and privacy in SDN-enabled VANETs.
