Vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) are defined as a group of wireless mobile nodes that characterized by their high mobility. Therefore, the topology frequently changes and high communication overhead for exchanging a new topology information has been introduced. Due to the huge enrichment by the video data based on the quality of experience recognized by the driver and knowledge of the environment , video transmission over VANETs has been considered as a critical challenge. Context-aware vehicular ad-hoc network is a novel field that introduces developed solutions for the previous challenges in VANETs and guarantees the stability of its topology through different high mobility of nodes. In this paper, we investigated the general issues related to VANETs such as characteristics, applications, and current challenges. Furthermore, we reviewed the most significant relevant studies that apply a context-aware issue as a new technique in vehicular networks that helps to overcome VANETs challenges.
