As a component of the intelligent transportation system and one of the concrete applications of mobile ad hoc networks, inter-vehicle communication has attracted research attention from both the academia and industry of, notably, US, EU, and Japan. The most important feature of inter-vehicle communication is its ability to extend the horizon of drivers and on-board devices (e.g., radar or sensors) and, thus, to improve road traffic safety and efficiency. Such type of driver assistance systems are meant to support drivers with driving process in order to avoid traffic accidents, speed up the traffic and have a higher control over the traffic in general.
