Falko Dressler, "Inter-Vehicular Communication: Protocols and Simulation Techniques," Tutorial, 71st IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC 2010-Spring), Taipei, Taiwan, May 16, 2010.


Much progress can be observed in the domain of Inter-Vehicular Communication, looking back at the last decade. It can be seen that studies of IVC protocols in the context of Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) are typically based on simulation models. This approach has two major prerequisites: First, detailed network simulation of all layers of communication protocols is necessary as provided by a wide variety of tools by the networking community. Secondly, realistic simulation of vehicles’ mobility, i.e., an exact modeling of road traffic, is needed to estimate positions and movements of involved components. The objectives of this tutorial are twofold: In the first part, an introduction to recent developments in the field of IVC protocols and the used methods is provides. In the second part, we investigate the evolution of mobility modeling in VANET simulations and how recent advances in bidirectional coupling of road traffic microsimulation and network simulation lead to more realistic results at comparably low computational cost. The tutorial aims to provide insights into relevant methods and protocols in the IVC domain and on how adequate performance studies have to be conducted.
