VANET: Vehicular Applications and Inter-Networking Technologies
Hannes Hartenstein, Kenneth Laberteaux
Wiley, Feb 15, 2010 - Technology & Engineering - 466 pages
This book provides an invaluable introduction to inter-vehicularcommunications, demonstrating the networking and communicationtechnologies for reducing fatalities, improving transportationefficiency, and minimising environmental impact.
This book addresses the applications and technical aspects ofradio-based vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructurecommunication that can be established by short- and medium rangecommunication based on wireless local area network technology(primarily IEEE 802.11). It contains a coherent treatment of theimportant topics and technologies contributed by leading experts inthe field, covering the potential applications for and theirrequirements on the communications system. The authors coverphysical and medium access control layer issues with focus on IEEE802.11-based systems, and show how many of the applications benefitwhen information is efficiently disseminated, and the techniquesthat provide attractive data aggregation (also includes design ofthe corresponding middleware). The book also considers issues suchas IT-security (means and fundamental trade-off between securityand privacy), current standardization activities such as IEEE802.11p, and the IEEE 1609 standard series.
This book provides a reference for professional automotivetechnologists (OEMS and suppliers), professionals in the area ofIntelligent Transportation Systems, and researchers attracted tothe field of wireless vehicular communications. Third and fourthyear undergraduate and graduate students will also find this bookof interest.
