Cooperative vehicular ICT systems have been identified as an attractive technology to improve traffic management and safety, while providing Internet on the move. To achieve these objectives, cooperative vehicular communication systems allow the dynamic exchange of messages between vehicles, and between vehicles and infrastructure. To ensure the efficiency of cooperative vehicular ICT systems, it is crucial that the communication protocols are adequately designed and optimised, and that the applications using such communication capabilities are tested under realistic conditions.
