The seamless integration of sensor technologies with the transportation infrastructure has leveraged the sensing and communication capabilities to achieve a sustainable intelligent transportation system through which safety, traffic control, and infotainment applications can benefit from multiple sensors deployed in different elements of the transportation system. Being one of the most active research fields in both academia and industry, sensor technologies enable various types of vehicular applications, such as autonomous driving, precise fleet management, intelligent traffic and congestion management, etc. A combination of low cost and reliable passive road sensors as well as traffic sensors (e.g., piezoelectric or magnetic micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) sensors) along with the IoT and fog computing provide an enormous potential for improving traffic efficiency, driving safety, and ride comfort.
