Recent developments in communication technologies, hardware and software are facilitating the implementation of different types of intelligent networks in various environments. One such network is the Internet-connected vehicles network. Internet of Vehicles (IoV) has recently become an active area of standardization, development and research, because it has shown to improve vehicle usage, traffic efficiency, road safety, as well as drivers’ and passengers’ comfort. As vehicles are becoming more connected and smarter, they are also becoming more reliant on software built with open source software (OSS). The deployment of OSS in the IoV field is, however, erratic and does not follow a clear approach. This study overviews the different applications in IoV as well as the existing and available open source software, in order to represent the current state of how this software paradigm is being used in IoV. This study also outlines challenges that remain to be addressed if we are to facilitate the widespread deployment and prevalent implementation of open source in IoV. Finally, this study explores some potential opportunities within IoV open source software for developing different IoV applications.
