Abstract—In this paper, we design and implement a next-generation hybrid Internet of Vehicles (IoV) communication system, which integrates DC-based power line communication (PLC), visible light communication (VLC), and 3G/4G mobile communication techniques. As a result, the proposed system can achieve the goal of interconnection of in-vehicle (IV), vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), and 3G/4G mobile networks, and therefore can provide flexible services and driving safety. The prototype system implemented has been tested to demonstrate the video transmission through PLC on a real vehicle and V2V data transfer by VLC.
