The research world is paying a lot of attention on vehicular networks nowadays. Novel vehicular services need a suitable communication channel in order to extend in-car capabilities and, generally, be aware about surrounding events. Such networks, however, present some special features, such as high mobility or specific topologies. These properties affect the performance of applications, and more effort should be directed to identify the necessities of the network. Few works deal with…

Real Experience with IPv6 Communications in Highways

The results show that the IPv6-based vehicular network performs correctly and is able to work with different communication technologies (3G and 802.11p), abstracting applications from network management duties.

A Rule-based Approach in Network Mobility IP Routing

The use of a node with Network Mobility (NEMO) Basic Support and enhanced capabilities for processing and executing high-level rules is proposed, which allows intelligent routing according to different parameters such as cost, geographical position, etc.

Contributions to mechanisms for adaptive use of mobile network resources

This thesis introduces all three elements (observation, decision, action) of a control framework to enable better use of available network resources and proposes to use the OMF Measurement Library (OML), a lightweight instrumentation and reporting tool, as the observation element of this framework.

Performance evaluation of cooperative strategies for Vehicular Delay‐Tolerant Networks

Across all the experiments, it was shown that all the strategies contribute to the improvement of the overall network performance by increasing the bundle delivery probability and consequently decrease the bundle average delivery delay.

WWW@VDTN - A Web browsing application for Vehicular Delay-Tolerant Networks

A Web browsing application for VDTNs, called WWW@VDTN, is presented and a combination of scheduling and dropping policies that takes into account information about the remaining lifetime of data improves the performance of the routing schemes in terms of delivery probability and delivery delay.

Survey of Traffic Congestion Detection using VANET

This survey summarizes the research on traffic information systems based on vehicular ad hoc networks and two classes of such systems are studied: Infrastructureless solutions based on inter-vehicle communication and infrastructure-based solutions.

Investigational results reveal that the proposed solution does not overtax the existing networks in affected area and vehicles remain aware of other vehicles even in low SNR by single radio technology and partial coverage areas.



Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks: A New Challenge for Localization-Based Systems

An evaluation of inter-vehicle ad hoc networks based on realistic vehicular traces

This study studies the behavior of routing protocols in VANETs by using mobility information obtained from a microscopic vehicular traffic simulator that is based on the on the real road maps of Switzerland, and investigates two improvements that increase the packet delivery ratio and reduce the delay until the first packet arrives.

VARON: Vehicular Ad hoc Route Optimisation for NEMO

On the Performance of Safety Message Dissemination in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

This paper investigates the feasibility of beacon safety message dissemination in VANETs through extensive simulation study and evaluates the performance of some simple protocols by the means of quality of service (QoS) metrics like delivery rate and delay and take special attention to reliability and fairness requirements of safety applications.

A MANET-centric solution for the application of NEMO in VANET using geographic routing

A novel solution for usage of the Network Mobility Basic Support protocol in vehicular ad hoc networks that adopts geographical routing as a sub-IP ad hoc routing protocol and applies a standard NEMO Mobile Router on top.

On the nature of Inter-Vehicle Communication

It is argued that applications for the communication between vehicles do not require the functionality typically offered by mobile ad-hoc-networks or wireless sensor networks, and the name Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network (VANET) is a misnomer leading practitioners and researchers astray.

IEEE 802.11 performances for inter-vehicle communication networks

Through simulations of vehicles convoys, the performance of IEEE 802.11 protocol in networks with strong mobility like vehicle networks is interested and the assessment of such protocol for large-scale vehicle-to-vehicle communications is discussed.

Simultaneous usage of NEMO and MANET for vehicular communication

By switching from NEMO to MANET, routes between vehicles are optimized and network performances improved in terms of latency and bandwidth and experiment results show that network performances are further improved with simultaneous usage of NemO and MANET.
