In recent years, the growing interest in the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) has resulted in variety of peer-reviewed publications. Significant results in this area have enabled many civilian and industry applications. As more and more vehicles are equipped with multiple network interfaces, how to efficient utilize the coexistence of Radio Access Technologies (RAT) such as WiFi, UMTS and WiMAX to serve a best Concurrent Multipath Transfer (CMT) service is still a challenge in ITS. In this paper, the authors propose GRA-CMT, a novel Grey Relational Analysis (GRA) based Concurrent Multipath Transfer, extension for Stream Control Transport Protocol (SCTP).
