Abstract: The rapid development of mobile communication technologies in recent yearsallows their application for intervehiclecommunication (IVC). In this paper, we evaluate the suitability of twowireless technologies for IVC, namely UniversalMobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) and IEEE 802.11 Wireless Local AreaNetwork (WLAN). We analyze the communicationproperties of these technologies and point out the requirements ofapplications for IVC. We present a series ofpractical experiments to evaluate the eligibility of each technology forapplications of IVC. To obtain comparable results, we performed measurementsbased on IP-unicast communication, since the lower layers of the twocommunication technologies differ drastically. Based on the recorded data ofradio coverage, latency and throughput, we draw conclusions on currentlyfeasible and infeasible applications for each technology.
