Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) incorporate vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication to provide a host of applications which aim to provide, among other things, a reduction in traffic congestion, accident detection and entertainment. In this paper, the authors describe a small scale experimental model in which they have implemented two major applications of VANETs i.e., Congestion detection and Emergency Notification. They first design the entire protocol for communication and then build the hardware modules - Roadside and vehicular modules, with the former planted at stationary locations and the later mounted on moving vehicles.
