Smart vehicles constitute the intelligent transportation system, the complex traffic network of multiple types of sensors in the energy consumption data and the amount of data transmitted is increasing, the network consisting of multi-source wireless sensors in the vehicle is often subject to DDoS attacks, the DDoS will lead to data loss or even traffic failure. Since multiple distributed vehicle nodes are dynamic constantly entering or leaving a network cluster, as smart vehicles continue to join the new wireless sensor network and obtain new identity IDs based on location, IP addresses are always allocated and recycled. DDoS attacks against vehicle networking clusters are difficult to identify, destructive and easy to implement. In this paper, we analyze the topology and communication patterns of wireless sensor networks in vehicular networks, the characteristics of being subject to DDoS attacks, the detection methods of each, and propose the initial detection and energy consumption trust value calculation for the detection of DDoS attack network nodes.
