Predicting users' next location allows to anticipate their future context, thus providing additional time to be ready for that context and react consequently. This work is focused on a set of LZ-based algorithms (LZ, LeZi Update and Active LeZi) capable of learning mobility patterns and estimating the next location with low resource needs, which makes it(More)
Thanks to the research on Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs), we will be able to deploy applications on roadways that will contribute to energy efficiency through a better planning of long trips. With this goal in mind, we have designed a gas/charging station advertising system, which takes advantage of the broadcast nature of the network. We have found(More)
—Road safety has become a main issue for governments and car manufacturers in the last twenty years. The concept of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is used when talking about communication technologies between vehicles and infrastructure to improve, among others, road safety. In this paper, we propose a warning service to prevent accidents by(More)
Many applications for vehicular networks, such as blocked road warnings or advertising, will require multi-hop dissemination of information to all vehicles in a region of interest. However, this type of communication can cause broadcast storms. Urban scenarios are especially sensitive to broadcast storms because of the high density of vehicles in downtown(More)
The recent release of standards for vehicular communications will hasten the development of smart cities in the following years. Many applications for vehicular networks, such as blocked road warnings or advertising, will require multi-hop dissemination of information to all vehicles in a region of interest. However, these networks present special features(More)
