Cognitive Cars: Constructing a Cognitive Playground for VANET Research Testbeds

Simulation today plays a key role in the study and understanding of extremely complex systems, which range from transportation networks to virus spread, and include large-scale Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs). Regarding VANET scenarios, until very recently, simulation has represented the only tool with which it was possible to estimate and compare the performances of different communication protocols. In fact, it was not possible to thoroughly test on the road any VANET based multi-hop communication system, as no highly dense vehicular testbed exists to this date.
