**Internet-of-things (IoT) has appeared as a novel and ground-breaking 
technology aiming to provide Internet connectivity to every device that 
have computation, communication and storage capability. Numerous 
applications such as smart health, smart cities, smart industries, and 
smart homes are a result of this phenomenon of connecting smart devices 
with the Internet. In order to provide secure and safe transportation, 
IoT has evolved into a novel concept, also known as the Internet of 
Vehicles (IoV) where smart vehicles equipped with computing, 
communicating and storing capabilities communicate with each other and 
with surrounding infrastructure via vehicle-to-everything (V2X) 
communications. The latter enabled the exchange of critical information 
among smart vehicles including sudden lane changes, steep-curves, black 
ice warnings, and traffic accidents avoidance, therefore assisting the 
drivers in extreme and difficult situations. IoV has an enormous 
potential to provide secure and safer transportation as it enables the 
vehicles to take correct decision in a timely manner. In addition, IoV 
will also have intelligence and learning capabilities to anticipate the 
vehicular users’ intentions. Cloud-based IoV mechanisms provide several 
essential services from routing to content search, spectrum sharing, 
dissemination, attack protection, etc. However, IoV-based objects 
produce a vast volume of information frequently called as Big Data, 
which cannot be easily processed by traditional algorithms and schemes. 
Future smart environments will enable efficient handling and processing 
of Big Data that is generated by the associated objects for an effective 
communication and co-operation among them.

In addition, Artificial Intelligence (AI) will play a crucial role in 
such environments, enabling for smarter services, applications, business 
processes and social interaction among the IoV objects. In this respect, 
a great potential exists for advanced technological solutions combined 
with AI and IoV-enabled capabilities. AI mechanisms applied in IoV 
environments can be exploited in smart cities to analyze drivers’ 
actions via data gathered and/or exchanged by enabled V2X vehicles’ 
Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and microcontrollers. AI will play a 
significant role in future IoV applications and infrastructures, by 
providing insights from collected data. This capability will enable the 
identification of patterns and will allow operational predictions with 
higher accuracy in small time periods. AI applications for smart 
vehicles will also enable businesses to develop new products, reduce 
possible risks and increase efficiency during the production time, by 
predicting failures that are usually non-detectable by humans.

The future of the implementation of AI-powered IoV infrastructures 
depends on the effective solutions to a number of technical challenges 
that such paradigms introduce. These challenges include intelligent 
sensor capabilities improvement and integration, smart Big Data 
analytics, automated remote data management, as well as open and secure 
composition of processes, which may be implemented into emerging 
AI-enabled IoV scenarios. Some initiatives try to incorporate Artificial 
Intelligence schemes in IoV environments, but new frameworks have to be 
defined. In fact, the approach of IoV is to find the potential benefits 
of AI, in order to build extensive ecosystems, for increasing the number 
of automated services and their value. This Book aims to gather recent 
research works in emerging Artificial Intelligence methods for 
processing and storing the data generated from cloud-based Internet of 
Vehicles infrastructures. In this context, the major subjects of the 
proposed book will cover the analysis and the development of AI-powered 
mechanisms in future IoV applications and architectures.
