Executive Summary

Vehicular networks are envisioned for large scale deployment, and standardization bodies, car manufacturers, and academic researchers are solving a variety of related challenges. After a brief description of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) architectures and the main already-established low-level standards, this tutorial elaborates on four particular aspects of vehicular networks, which are the potential for a large set of innovative applications, a review of the main modeling approaches used for both roads and traffic, and finally two important communication primitives, that are data dissemination via broadcasting/geo-casting, and routing in both highway and urban environments.
