With the emerging concepts of smart cities and intelligent transportation systems, accurate traffic sensing and prediction have become critically important to support urban management and traffic control. In recent years, the rapid uptake of the Internet of Vehicles and the rising pervasiveness of mobile services have produced unprecedented amounts of data to serve traffic sensing and prediction applications. However, it is significantly challenging to fulfill the computation demands by the big traffic data with ever-increasing complexity and diversity. Deep learning, with its powerful capabilities in representation learning and multi-level abstractions, has recently become the most effective approach in many intelligent sensing systems. In this paper, we present an up-to-date literature review on the most advanced research works in deep learning for intelligent traffic sensing and prediction.
