By exchanging events in a vehicular ad hoc network, drivers can receive interesting information while driving. For example, they can be informed of available parking spaces in their vicinity. Obviously, a suitable protocol is needed to disseminate the events efficiently within the area where they are relevant. Moreover, in such a competitive context where(More)
A vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) is a type of mobile network whose nodes are traveling cars and which communicate with one another using short-range wireless communications. These cars can exchange and share different information among them, which can lead to the development of interesting applications that require the cooperation of vehicles or using the(More)
This paper focuses on intelligent transportation systems and, more precisely, on intervehicle ad hoc networks. A vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) is a highly dynamic network as the vehicles communicate using short-range wireless communications and can move very quickly. Thus, for example, we can only rely on short interactions between vehicles to exchange(More)
By exchanging events in a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET), drivers can receive information that allows them to find relevant places (e.g., parking spaces) or avoid dangerous/undesirable situations (e.g., an accident or a traffic jam). However, developing this kind of information services for drivers calls for new data management approaches, such as an(More)

Recently, there has been a great interest in the development of protocols and data management techniques for vehicular networks (VANETs). In a VANET, the vehicles form a wireless ad hoc network where different types of useful data can be exchanged by using the dynamic links that a vehicle can establish with its neighboring vehicles. While this offers(More)
The transportation domain brings particular needs dealing with the specificities of the environment (highly mobile, distributed, unstable network connection, …). In this paper, we propose a dynamic adaptable framework responding to the needs of transportation's applicative services. Among the most important services we can name positioning, time or(More)
VESPA (Vehicular Event Sharing with a mobile P2P Architecture) 1 is a system for enabling vehicles to share information in vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs). The originality of VESPA is to process and disseminate any type of event (e.g., available parking spaces, accidents, emergency braking, information relative to the coordination of vehicles in(More)
