Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Most of the 14 contributions in this collection present new developments in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), addressing such topics as traffic flow, safety, content delivery, mobile ad hoc routing, localization, vehicular mobility models, and driver distraction. Two of the papers review vehicle-infrastructure cooperation and car-to-car communication initiatives in Europe, Japan, and the United States. The editors are professors of computer science at Old Dominion University. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In spite of their importance and potential societal impact, there is currently no comprehensive source of information about vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). Cohesively integrating the state of the art in this emerging field, Vehicular Networks: From Theory to Practice elucidates many issues involved in vehicular networking, including traffic engineering, human factors studies, and novel computer science research.

Divided into six broad sections, the book begins with an overview of traffic engineering issues, such as traffic monitoring and traffic flow modeling. It then introduces governmental and industrial efforts in the United States and Europe to set standards and perform field tests on the feasibility of vehicular networks. After highlighting innovative applications enabled by vehicular networks, the book discusses several networking-related issues, including routing and localization. The following section focuses on simulation, which is currently the primary method for evaluating vehicular networking systems. The final part explores the extent and impact of driver distraction with in-vehicle displays.

Encompassing both introductory and advanced concepts, this guide covers the various areas that impact the design of applications for vehicular networks. It details key research challenges, offers guidance on developing future standards, and supplies valuable information on existing experimental studies.
