Modern society depends on faster, safer, and environment friendly transportation system. Vehicular communications network in terms of vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to infrastructure, vehicle to pedestrian, vehicle to cloud, and vehicle to sensor, can provide a solution to such transportation system. In this talk, we first introduce the all connected vehicles. We then present the applications, challenges and scientific research issues of vehicular communications network. We also explain the role of vehicular networking in the automated driving era. We conclude the talk by discuss the future Space-Air-Ground (SAG) Integrated vehicular networks for better coverage and service quality.
