The GeoNet project has been set up in order to combine IPv6 and geographic addressing and routing. This combination is needed in order to guarantee interoperability between ITS communication architectures and Internet-based communications. It is used to deliver safety messages between cars but also between cars and the roadside infrastructure within a designated destination area and over multiple hops. The objective of the project is to specify the architecture where geographic routing is combined together with IPv6 features (NEMO, etc.). The project has so far produced an architecture, a reference specification of a geographic addressing and routing protocol with support for IPv6. This is currently under implementation.
INRIA (Arnaud de La Fortelle and Thierry Ernst) is coordinator of this project.
