IPv6 Address Auto configuration in Geonetworking enabled VANETs: Characterization and Evaluation of the ETSI Solution

In this paper, the authors make a thorough characterization and evaluation of the solution standardized by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute for IPv6 transmission of packets over geographical location aware vehicular networks. In particular, they focus on IPv6 address auto-configuration, one of the required pieces to enable Internet connectivity from vehicles. Communications in vehicular networks are strongly dependent on the availability of multi-hop connectivity to the fixed infrastructure, so also they analyze the probability of achieving this connectivity under different circumstances, and they use the results to identify interesting target scenarios for address auto-configuration mechanisms.
