Using measurements from VanLAN, a modest-size testbed that we have deployed, we analyze the fundamental characteristics of WiFi-based connectivity between basestations and vehicles in urban settings. Our results uncover a more complex picture than previous work which was conducted in more benign settings. The interval between a vehicle coming into and going out of range of a basestation is often marred by intermittent periods of very poor connectivity. These "gray periods" are hard to reliably… CONTINUE READING
