- Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is a promising technology to be applied for different applications due to its
high penetration, high data rate, reliability, and QoS support. One of the emerging applications for LTE is
vehicular networks. Vehicular networks can raise traffic safety, improve traffic management, or provide
infotainment services for road users. LTE device-to-device (LTE-D2D) communication which was
proposed by 3GPP working group is also a good candidate to be applied for vehicle-to-vehicle
communications (V2V). The V2V communication for traffic safety has strict QoS requirements in terms of
latency and reliability. LTE-D2D may provide high reliability and low latency for such a communication.
However, an efficient radio resource management for V2V communications in an LTE network is required
to support such requirements. In the current article, we introduce vehicular networks, their requirements,
and existing technologies to be employed in them and especially look at LTE-D2D to connect cars. Most
recent works in radio resource management for V2V communications in LTE are reviewed in this work.
