How effective is to look at a vehicular network under a social perception?

Abstract : Vehicular Mobility is strongly influenced by the speed limits and direction of the public roads. At the same time, the driver's behavior produces great influences in vehicular mobility. People tend to go to the same places, at the same day period, through the same trajectories, which le ad them to the appearance of driver's daily routines. These routines lead us to the study of mobility in VANETs under a social perspective and to investigate how effective is to explore social interactions in this kind of network. The work herein proposed presents the characterization and evaluation of a realistic vehicular trace found in literature. Our aim is to study the vehicles' mobility in accordance to social behaviors. With our analysis is possible to verify the existence of regularity and common interests among the drivers in vehicular networks. Finally, we discuss how the social metrics may be used to improve the performance of protocols and services in Vehicular Networks.
