Driver-Centric VANET Simulation


Inter-vehicle communication is becoming increasingly relevant in the research and development of novel, innovative vehicular applications. To support the driver in his/her primary driving task in an effective non distracting way, these applications need to be evaluated in a realistic context from a driver’s perspective of the VANET environment. In this paper we propose an innovative driver-centric simulation tool that integrates a VANET simulator with a driving simulator using communication technologies to relay information about the vehicle to the VANET environment and vice versa. The driver behavior is reflected in the VANET simulation system affecting the mobility of the cars in the vicinity and providing the intelligent driving model with new realistic features.
