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(More)
—This article focuses on intelligent transportation systems and more precisely on inter-vehicle 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 the vehicles to(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)
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)
This paper focuses on intelligent transportation systems. Specifically, we look at data management issues in inter-vehicle ad hoc networks. Such networks are highly dynamic due to the movements of the vehicles and the short range of the wireless communications. Thus, for example, we can only rely on short interactions between the vehicles. Consequently ,(More)
