Adapting the H.264 Standard to the Internet of Vehicles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We suggest two steps of reducing the amount of data transmitted on Internet of Vehicle networks. The first step shifts the image from a full-color resolution to only an 8-color resolution. The reduction of the color numbers is noticeable; however, the 8-color images are enough for the requirements of common vehicles’ applications. The second step suggests modifying the quantization tables employed by H.264 to different tables that will be more suitable to an image with only 8 colors. The first step usually reduces the size of the image by more than 30%, and when continuing and performing the second step, the size of the image decreases by more than 40%. That is to say, the combination of the two steps can provide a significant reduction in the amount of data required to be transferred on vehicular networks.
