Abstract. Intelligent transport systems require efficient wireless telecommunications.
Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET) are based on short- to medium-range transmission systems that support both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside communications. Vehicular networks will enable vehicular safety applications (safety warnings) as well as non-safety applications (real-time traffic information, routing support, mobile entertainment, and many others). We are interested in developing an efficient routing protocol that takes advantage of the fixed network infrastructure deployed along the roads. We are also studying MAC layer issues in order to provide more priority for security messages which have stringent delivery constraints.
