In order to avoid transmission collisions in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs), a reliable and ecient Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol is needed. Vehicular MANETs (VANETs) have vehicles as network nodes and their main characteristics are the high mobility and speed. Active Safety applications for VANETs need to establish reliable communications with(More)
—Nowadays, researchers show more and more interests to Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs), which are a specific instance of Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) where nodes are vehicles. In VANETs, vehicles have no energy resource constraint which could extend coverage and network lifetime, but have a high mobility patterns that cause frequent and fast topology(More)
Vehicular communication is an important part of the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Geographic routing in vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) is becoming an interesting topic to deliver safety messages between cars but also between a car and a roadside infrastructure within a designated destination area. The Car2Car Communication Consortium specified(More)
—The combination of geographic-based routing protocols (GeoNetworking) and IPv6 NEtwork MObility (NEMO) into a single communication architecture (IPv6 GeoNetworking) is key in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET). While NEMO manages Internet access and session continuity between the vehicle and the Internet, geographically based data forwarding allows an(More)
—In this article, experimental results on the Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) are presented. We study the RPL properties in terms of delivery ratio, control packet overhead and dynamicity. The results are obtained by several experimentations conducted in a large wireless sensor network testbed composed of more than 250 sensor nodes.(More)
—The number of vehicles on roads keeps increasing continuously, making the management of traffic flow, especially in big cities more and more challenging. One of the key enablers for having smooth traffic flows and better mobility is to rely on real-time traffic monitoring systems. These systems allow road operators to implement intelligent traffic(More)
