Vehicular communications are becoming a reality under the push of increased transportation safety requirements and huge investments of several actors in the field like car manufacturers and Public Transport Authorities. As a consequence, the building blocks of the "Vehicle Grid" (radios, Access Points, spectrum, standards, etc.) will soon be in place enabling a broad gamut of applications ranging from automatic safety systems, intelligent transport, entertainment, urban sensing and environmental protection/ monitoring. In this paper, the authors take a visionary look at "Vehicular Grid" and they argue that the cooperation of pure ad-hoc vehicle-to-vehicle communications and roadside infrastructure are fundamental to broaden the supported applications.
