With the advent of vehicles with sufficient computing power and communications capabilities, a range of new applications involving many vehicles are becoming feasible. These applications will involve the large-scale collection, processing, and dissemination of data, in which vehicles could participate as the sources, processors, and sinks. One such application is the automatic generation of up-to-date digital road maps based on the collection and processing of vehicles' location data. However, deploying such an application will involve several challenges and issues, including the choice of architecture to support it.This article is part of a special issue on Intelligent Transportation.
