Cooperative vehicular communications are being developed to improve road safety and traffic management by assisting drivers and road authorities with real-time and comprehensive traffic information. In the study of such systems, large-scale simulation research has been identified as a necessary resource to realistically evaluate cooperative vehicular systems and traffic management policies in city-sized scenarios. This paper presents the iTETRIS multi-technology wireless simulation platform aimed at providing an optimally, efficiently and well-designed framework for the evaluation of vehicular communications and its potential impact on traffic efficiency.
