Vehicular networking is promising to improve traffic efficiency and driving safety, as well as travel experience. However, the traditional network employs a highly coupled design, which is quite limited in its ability to satisfy various challenging vehicular demands. Recently, new studies focus on how to design software defined vehicular networks smartly to meet various vehicular demands. In this article, we investigate a new smart identifier networking (SINET) paradigm and propose a SINET customized solution enabling crowd collaborations for software defined vehicular networks (SINET-V). In particular, through crowd sensing, network function slices are well organized with a group of function-similar components. Different function slices are further driven to serve various applications by using crowd collaborations. We clearly illustrate how SINET-V works and also analyze its potential advantages in several special vehicular instances. Experimental results show that SINET-V has great potential to promote powerful vehicular networks.
