Vehicular Communications Networks Principles and Applications



Vehicular communications networks are created by vehicles equipped with short and medium range wireless communication technology. They include vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANET), vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications. VCNs enable a plethora of important applications and services, ranging from high-mobility broadband wireless access, to Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). In this talk I will explore the unique features and challenges that characterise these highly dynamic wireless networks and explore their role in ITS and the provisioning of broadband wireless access to users on the road. I review state-of-the-art in the development of system architectures, MAC protocols, information dissemination and mobility management, simulation modelling and performance analysis, and conclude by exploring some future research directions.

The content of this talk is partially based on tutorials given at the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (April 2007, Dublin and September 2007, Baltimore), see

Dr Maziar Nekovee is a Senior Scientist at BT and a Royal Society Industry Fellow at the Centre for Computational Science, University College London.  He obtained his MSc. in electrical engineering (cum laude) from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and his PhD in theoretical and computational physics from the University of Nijmegen, also in the Netherlands. Dr Nekovee's research cuts across several disciplines and involves extensive collaborations with industrial and academic researchers. Current research areas include vehicular communication networks, theory and applications of complex networks, and cognitive radio networks.
