Abstract : Despite the growing interest in a real-world deployment of vehicle-to-vehicle communication, the topological features of the resulting vehicular network remain largely unknown. We lack a clear under- standing of the level of connectivity achievable in large-scale scenarios, the availability and reliability of connected multi-hop paths, or the impact of daytime. In this paper, we adopt a complex network approach to provide a first characterization of a realistic large-scale urban vehicular ad hoc network. We unveil the low connectivity, availability, reliability and navigability of the network, and exploit our findings to derive network design guidelines.
