AbstractThe technology has been advancing for the past few years, which resulted in technology enhanced devices equipped in many vehicles. These devices can reduce the majority of human effort in vehicular networks. The vehicles on roads are increasing day by day, which resulted in traffic congestion, air pollution due to emission of carbon dioxide, a lot of valuable time is wasted on road traffic and apart from these it causes frustration to the drivers as well as to the passengers. The construction of transportation infrastructure and various expansions does not solve the existing transportation problems. Now all countries are spending valuable time and money to explore ITS technology to solve traffic related problems. So there is a need for applying various technologies in this VANET to minimize or to overcome these problems. This paper focuses on surveying various technologies along with its application in VANET.

    The VANET is a network of vehicles which is formed without using any central base station, instead the dynamic vehicles itself will be used for establishing and providing communication facilities among the vehicles. In the Vehicular network, each vehicle can communicate with other sets of vehicles and with the road side unit (RSU) i.e., V2V communication and V2I communication [1]. Since the vehicles are mobile in nature, the network topology changes dynamically. The communications with such mobile vehicles are highly challenging due to the frequent disconnection between vehicles [2]. Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) uses continuous information which is gained from various sensors, based on this knowledge some processing will be done to optimize the required result. The development of this field is done initially in the US and later introduced in various other countries. The ITS based on Internet of Things (IoT) has been emerging for the past few years and it will continue to provide many applications in VANET [3]. The integration of IoT based technologies in VANET will provide many application oriented benefits for the traffic management system. The main application of such technologies in VANET includes non-stop electronic highway toll collection, mobile traffic police unit for law

    enforcement, emergency vehicle path clearance, anti-theft vehicle system, traffic rule violation monitoring, etc [4].


    In this section, related works are discussed and presented elaborately. This literature review helps the researchers to find out various existing methodologies and areas in VANET. A detailed review that focused on video-based vehicles image capturing systems was carried out [5]. It collected various data and addressed the problems in the system and that paper presented detailed construction for video based vehicle surveillance systems, i.e., a classification based on vehicle and networked vehicular investigation is presented in the paper. It also addresses alternate methods. Another detailed review was presented, where the artificial intelligence based ITS has been categorized into six areas like clustering, controller system, location and detection, social sensing, routing and outsourced storage [6]. The importance of each is listed with methodology and presented a perspective of IoT in ITS.

  3. INTELLIGENT TECHNIQUES IN VANET Context: VANET is an extremely active wheeled system, wherever the road side units and highway vehicles deliberated as nodules to permit the wireless communication. Owing to the great active nature of VANETs, the flexibility design and the system strategies modified regularly that create it vary from the additional type of ad-hoc system. The difficulty of this investigation is a critical scheming for active routing procedure in VANETs [7].

Context: An ITS currently develops an explanation for managing those difficulties. ITSs remained previously measured in industrialized nations under dissimilar developments. Though, they are infrequently recycled in most emerging nations at the cost of emerging, realizing and preserving those systems [9].

    Objective: They developed a outline for two chief goals: 1) Gathering and handling traffic data from numerous kinds of foundations such as sensors, cameras, buses, GPS on cars, motorcycles, taxis, etc. or separate users via our Portable Solicitation; 2) Familiarizing numerous events in

    transportation research to regulate the traffic and inform users via a control center.

    Methods: Firstly, they suggested extensively usage of the GPS strategies in motorbikes, which were presently prevalent in emerging motherlands, to gather the road traffic information since it is further professionally and can trail the road traffic status of all road sections. Additionally, they build a Movable Application on IoS nd Android stages to gather GPS information from separate users in order to supplement the traffic dataset. Finally, we grow numerous novel procedures in dispensation and examining our road traffic data to subsidize directive and self-regulation events via a control center.

    Significance: ITS is initially organized in Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam under the support of native specialists. Drawback: In the forthcoming years, it is valuable to grow more topography concerning the communication among operators and regulator centers in the leadership to operators for evading traffic bottlenecks or reducing travel time. Objective: RFID-GPS combined techniques can be used to track stolen vehicles, providing a smooth way for emergency vehicles in a network [10].

    Methods: RFID-GPS mechanism using AODV routing protocol is used to track stolen vehicles. The vehicle id is checked in the network using RFID and its position can be tracked using GPS. The suspected stolen vehicles ID will be communicated and detected through V2V communication in the network. Fig. 1 shows the RFID-GPS network with vehicles transmitting and receiving informations through various intermediate vehicles and other devices.

    Results: Compared with other techniques its performance is good. This technique is really useful since it can identify vehicles even in tunnels.

    Context: ITSs had improved conventional conveyance schemes and delivered circulation evidence to travelers [11]. Objective: To send precise and opportune measure data, a QoS-aware link rate function had been planned and castoff for information broadcast among the static sensor nodes.

    Drawback: This can lead to unnecessary destruction in case of huge source representations.


Machine learning and Deep learning algorithms also provides efficient decision making capabilities to this field. The various such applications includes automatic detection and penalty issued for traffic violations, speed monitoring, seat belt wearing, etc. Also it can be used to monitor and detect criminal person on the roads. Convolution neural network (CNN) is been mostly used for object detection and monitoring. For detection of accidents, driver drowsiness etc it is been very good. Recurrent neural networks (RNN) is used for resource reservations i.e., the vehicle may request different services like to find short path, to find nearest petrol station etc. With the advance in ML and DL, the VANET performance has improved a lot. Depending upon the types of application the ML techniques need to be selected. V. CONCLUSION With the help of emerging technologies in the field of intelligent transportation systems, traffic congestion problems, transportation of emergency vehicles, shortest path information etc can be addressed. A review is conducted on various intelligent techniques that have been used to track the location of vehicles, traffic optimisation methods, privacy techniques used while transferring information between vehicles to RSU and among vehicles. The construction of vehicular infrastructure is costly and it does not solve traffic related issues. This paper presented various techniques used in VANET by which intelligence can be imparted on vehicles in VANET, which makes the network smart. It addresses the merits and drawbacks of using different technologies in the field of VANTE. The emergence of IoT devices and various data analytics tools will help in optimizing traffic information at the right time.
