    This book discusses the recent advanced technologies in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), with a view on how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) cooperate with future vehicles.

    ITS technologies aim to achieve traffic efficiency and advance transportation safety and mobility. Known as aircrafts without onboard human operators, UAVs are used across the world for civilian, commercial, as well as military applications. Common deployment include policing and surveillance, product deliveries, aerial photography, agriculture, and drone racing. As the air-ground cooperation enables more diverse usage, this book addresses the holistic aspects of the recent advanced technologies in ITS, including Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), cyber security, and service management from principle and engineering practice aspects. This is achieved by providing in-depth study on several major topics in the fields of telecommunications, transport services, cyber security, and so on.

    The book will serve as a useful text for transportation, energy, and ICT societies from both academia and industrial sectors. Its broad scope of introductory knowledge, technical reviews, discussions, and technology advances will also benefit potential authors.
