Data Communication in VANETs: A Survey, Challenges and Applications

Abstract : VANETs have emerged as an exciting research and application area. Increasingly vehicles are being equipped with embedded sensors, processing and wireless communication capa- bilities opening a myriad of possibilities for powerful and potential life changing applications on safety, efficiency, comfort, public collaboration and participation while they are on the road. Al- though, considered a special case of a Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, VANETS hold a vital feature - the possibility to affect people's life or death decisions. Due to the particular characteristics, from highly dynamic topology to intermittent connectivity, VANETs have great challenges lie ahead, to mention a few: different application QoS requirements, and conflicting privacy and safety issues. In this paper, a view of VANETs is presented from the communication and application challenges perspective.
