Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) is a highly mobile autonomous and self-organizing network of vehicles. VANET is a particular case of Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET). With the recent advances in the arena of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and computing, the researchers have envisioned that VANET could be the basis of many new applications in the field of Internet of Things (IoT). The applications of VANET are not limited to be the driver for safety, traffic management, entertainment, commerce, etc. In the future, VANETs are expected to transport the enormous amount of information. Some of the challenges in VANET are less computing capability, smaller onboard storage, safety, reliability, etc. Among the number of solutions proposed recently, Vehicular Cloud Computing (VCC) is one of them. VCC is a technology that provides on-demand services namely Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), etc. over the internet via Cloud vendors.
