Description

Vehicular Communications and Networks: Architectures, Protocols, Operation and Deployment discusses VANETs (Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks) or VCS (Vehicular Communication Systems), which can improve safety, decrease fuel consumption, and increase the capacity of existing roadways and which is critical for the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) industry. Part one covers architectures for VCS, part two describes the physical layer, antenna technologies and propagation models, part three explores protocols, algorithms, routing and information dissemination, and part four looks at the operation and deployment of vehicular communications and networks.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive coverage of the fundamental principles behind Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETS) and the rapidly growing need for their further development
  • Thorough overview of the design and development of key technologies and devices
  • Explores the practical application of this technology by outlining a number of  case studies, testbeds and simulations employing vehicular communications and networks

Readership

Postgraduate students and academic researchers in automotive engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications and networking will find this a useful reference book. It will be of interest to R&D managers in industrial sectors such as the automotive industry, wireless technology, electronics, telecommunications and networking, and information technology, and also to government agencies and standards organisations.
