Vehicular Network Applications and Services

Abstract
Vehicular networks will not be commercially deployed unless there are

applications that benefit from them. Since the first research projects on

vehicular networks, see, for example, the PROMETHEUS project [1,2], the

main focus has been on increasing traffic safety. With the help of vehicular

communication, the number of accidents will decrease and human lives

will be saved.

Therefore, the two application categories that have attracted the most

attention during the years are related to public safety, for example, collision

avoidance applications and vehicular traffic coordination, where vehicles

coordinate their movements with each other. Some considerable work... (More)
Vehicular networks will not be commercially deployed unless there are

applications that benefit from them. Since the first research projects on

vehicular networks, see, for example, the PROMETHEUS project [1,2], the

main focus has been on increasing traffic safety. With the help of vehicular

communication, the number of accidents will decrease and human lives

will be saved.

Therefore, the two application categories that have attracted the most

attention during the years are related to public safety, for example, collision

avoidance applications and vehicular traffic coordination, where vehicles

coordinate their movements with each other. Some considerable work has

also been done on applications related to road traffic management, which

can help alleviate congested roads and thereby decrease the number of

accidents, as well as decreasing the travel time.

Numerous other applications have also been proposed, which relate

to other objectives than traffic safety. Many of these applications can be

categorized as comfort applications. The objective of these applications is

to improve the travel comfort for both the drivers (e.g., with information

from roadside restaurants) and the passengers (e.g., with Internet access

and video-on-demand systems).

The main objective of the papers proposing various vehicular applications

is usually to propose a data dissemination technique for this particular

application. Very few papers, if any, have been focused on how the applications

should be implemented in reality. In this chapter, we will, therefore,

describe some proposed solutions for the envisioned applications and,

thereby, also discuss suitable communication architectures and protocols

for these applications. (Less)
