Abstract

Vehicular networks allow drivers and passengers in moving vehicles to communicate from vehicle to vehicle, or from vehicle to an existing infrastructure, without the need for additional hardware. The main goals for these networks are to improve road safety and transportation efficiency. This article briefly describes the state-of-the-art, and new achievements in the vehicular network field, and shows the analysis of the behavior of such networks through the use of simulation models deployed in the NCTUns simulation tool, considering the layout of typical cities in Colombia.
