The ever-increasing processing power that can today support large scale and detailed simulations increased the depth of the research carried out on protocols and apps developed for single hop and multi-hop Vehicular Ad Hoc NETwork (VANET) environments. It is now possible, for example, to verify the effectiveness of peer-to-peer one-hop file exchange protocols between vehicles, while taking into account the effects that buildings have on point-to-point transmissions at street intersections, or also verify how a high density of vehicles can impact the transfer of multimedia information through multiple hops between passengers involved into an online game.
