On the level of detail of synthetic highway traffic necessary to vehicular networking studies

The proper modeling of road traffic is paramount to the dependability of studies on vehicular networking solutions intended for highway environments. Yet, it is not clear which is the actual level of detail in the mobility representation that is …

Temporal connectivity of vehicular networks: The power of store-carry-and-forward

Store-carry-and-forward is extensively used in vehicular environments for many and varied purposes, including routing, disseminating, downloading, uploading, or offloading delay-tolerant content. The performance gain of store-carry-and-forward over …

Vehicular networks on two Madrid highways

There is a growing need for vehicular mobility datasets that can be employed in the simulative evaluation of protocols and architectures designed for upcoming vehicular networks. Such datasets should be realistic, publicly available, and …

Overhearing-Assisted Optimization of Address Autoconfiguration in Position-Aware VANETs

Vehicular networks allow vehicles to exchange information that can be used to improve traffic efficiency and drivers' safety. In addition to these new applications, Internet connectivity is also expected to be available in the cars of the near …

Performance evaluation of a tree-based routing and address autoconfiguration for vehicle-to-Internet communications

Vehicular ad hoc networks have proven to be quite useful for broadcast alike communications between nearby cars, but can also be used to provide Internet connectivity from vehicles. In order to do so, vehicle-to-Internet routing and IP address …

New insights from the analysis of free flow vehicular traffic in highways

Building vehicular networks in roads and highways is a challenging research topic with a large number of applications ranging from traffic jams and car collisions prevention to efficient route planning. The analysis of the distance between vehicles …

Optimized IPv6 Internet access from vehicles in multi-hop and heterogeneous environments

In order to provide efficient Internet connectivity from vehicles, three fundamental functionalities are needed: IP address autoconfiguration, enhanced routing and mobility support. This extended abstract provides a brief view of the work done so far …

TREBOL: Tree-Based Routing and Address Autoconfiguration for Vehicle-to-Internet Communications

Efficient vehicle-to-internet routing and address autoconfiguration are two of the missing pieces required to provide Internet connectivity from vehicles. Here, we propose TREBOL, a tree-based and configurable protocol which benefits from the …
