In this paper, we propose a secure internet of vehicles (IoV) framework that can handle the transportation ecosystem of a very large and dynamic crowd. The framework will allow personalized and location-aware vehicle IoT data to store in blockchain and off-chain repositories for secure sharing with one's community of interest. As a test case of our proposed application, we have developed distributed smartphone applications that can be interfaced with the OBD-II interface to collect in-vehicle data from the CAN bus of a vehicle and an ambient intelligent environment consisting of IoT devices. The in-vehicle environment can collect vehicle sensory information, process the sensory data within the mobile edge network and store the transactions and the raw sensory data to blockchain and off-chain repositories through secure digital wallets. Finally, we will present our implemented framework and initial test results.
