Vehicular Communication Networks (VCNs) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are emerging types of networks, which have individually been extensively explored. However, their cooperation and exploring advantages offered by their integration are unexplored topics. Such integration help better investigate impacts of human mobility and transportation behaviours on safety and well-being of cities, their residents, their surrounding environments, and ecology. In this chapter we propose a quality-aware data aggregation technique for wireless sensor networks cooperating with vehicular communication networks, which fast, reliably, and energy efficiently aggregates sensor data and sends the aggregated value to road side base stations. Ensuring quality of service parameters has been put forward as an essential consideration for wireless sensor networks, which are often deployed in unattended and open environments and are characterized by their limited resources. To this end, in-network data aggregation is an efficient solution to save energy and bandwidth and to provide meaningful information to end-users.
