Bidirectional highway traffic for network simulation

Reliable and reproducible research in vehicular networking demands, among other requisites, a suitable representation of road traffic. We leverage real-world fine-grained measurement data recorded on the M40 highway in Madrid, Spain, to feed a …

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 …

The Bologna Ringway Dataset: Improving Road Network Conversion in SUMO and Validating Urban Mobility via Navigation Services

The current lack of reference datasets of road traffic mobility for network simulation jeopardizes the reliability and reproducibility of vehicular networking research. We contribute to the ongoing effort to develop dependable and publicly available …

Measurement-Based Modeling of Interarrivals for the Simulation of Highway Vehicular Networks

Simulation is the standard approach to the performance evaluation of vehicular network solutions. However, the relevance of its results is often questioned by the adoption of unrealistic vehicular mobility representations. In this letter, we propose …

ABEONA Monitored Traffic: VANET-Assisted Cooperative Traffic Congestion Forecasting

The existing mechanisms to monitor vehicular traffic, such as the use of induction loops and cameras, are expensive to deploy and maintain. Vehicular communications opens up a new world of optimization opportunities as each vehicle can be used as a …

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 …
