Understanding Interactions in Vehicular Networks Through Taxi Mobility

Abstract : Vehicular Networks (VANETs) are an emerging network that enables the communication among the vehicles, in order to promote a safe and efficient traffic, avoiding crashes and preventing hazards. These vehicles transit on the streets and highways, and during their trajectories, they can communicate with each other or with another network, through interactions among them and road side units. Aiming to better understand these interactions, in this work, we characterize the vehicular mobility through a detailed analysis of dataset traces, which portray the mobility of a group of taxis in a great city. We perform the analysis using statistical techniques, graph theory and network analysis, extracting properties and behaviors from the mobility traces. The results reveal the existence of regularity and common interests in the studied traces.
