Title: On the nature of Inter-Vehicle Communication
Published: WMAN 2007: Proceedings of the 4th Workshop on Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks , pp. 493-502, Bern, Switzerland, March 2007
Abstract: In this position paper we argue that applications for the communication between vehicles do not require the functionality typically offered by mobile ad-hoc-networks or wireless sensor networks. Consequently the name Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network (VANET) is a misnomer leading practitioners and researchers astray. In order to make our point we briefly outline the characteristicsof Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs), wireless sensor networks and classicalinfrastructure-based access networks. We then show that the applications considered for car-to-car communication are best served either by the latter or requirealtogether different network services not found in mobile ad-hoc networks orWireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). We conclude our statement by pointing outsome of the fundamental and unique research challenges posed by Inter-VehicleCommunication (IVC).
