Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is the evolution of vehicular ad-hoc networks and intelligent transportation systems focused on reaping the benefits of data generated by various sensors within these networks. The IoV is further empowered by a centralized cloud and distributed fog-based infrastructure. The myriad amounts of data generated by the vehicles and the environment have the potential to enable diverse services. These services can benefit from both variety and velocity of the generated data.

This paper emphasizes the challenges involved in offering the context-aware services in an IoV environment. In order to overcome these challenges, this paper proposes a data analytics framework for fog infrastructures at the fog layer of traditional IoV architecture that offers context-aware real time, near real-time and batch services at the edge of a network. Finally, the appropriateness of the proposed framework is verified through different use cases in the IoV environment.
