A wide variety of applications for road safety and traffic efficiency are intended to answer the urgent call for smarter, greener, and safer mobility. Although IEEE 802.11p is considered as the de facto standard for on-the-road communications, stakeholders have recently started to investigate the usability of Long Term Evolution (LTE) to support vehicular(More)
The new era of Internet of Things (IoT) is driving the revolution in computing and communication technologies spanning every aspect of our lives. Thanks to its innovative concepts, such as named content, name-based routing and in-network caching, Named Data Networking (NDN) appears as a key enabling paradigm for IoT. Despite its potential, the support of(More)
—IEEE 802.11p/WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments) is an emerging family of standards intended to support wireless access in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). Broadcasting of data and control packets is expected to be crucial in this environment. Both safety-related and non-safety applications rely on broadcasting for the exchange of data or(More)
—Effective data broadcasting is essential in vehicular networks not only for road-safety message dissemination but also to aid routing and cooperative driving applications through periodic beaconing and to spread network initialization advertisements that are mandatory to support infotainment applications. Broadcast data are neither acknowledged nor(More)
—Safety and non-safety applications envisioned for Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) heavily rely on broadcasting for the exchange of data and status messages. New threats to road safety and efficiency raise if security requirements for broadcasting are not properly met. The decision whether or not a driver can trust information about a reported hazard(More)
