Sammanfattning

Vehicular networks will not be commercially deployed unless there are
applications that benefit from them. Since the first research projects on
vehicular networks, see, for example, the PROMETHEUS project 1,2, the
main focus has been on increasing traffic safety. With the help of vehicular
communication, the number of accidents will decrease and human lives
will be saved.
Therefore, the two application categories that have attracted the most
attention during the years are related to public safety, for example, collision
avoidance applications and vehicular traffic coordination, where vehicles
coordinate their movements with each other. Some considerable work has
also been done on applications related to road traffic management, which
can help alleviate congested roads and thereby decrease the number of
accidents, as well as decreasing the travel time.
Numerous other applications have also been proposed, which relate
to other objectives than traffic safety. Many of these applications can be
categorized as comfort applications. The objective of these applications is
to improve the travel comfort for both the drivers (e.g., with information
from roadside restaurants) and the passengers (e.g., with Internet access
and video-on-demand systems).
The main objective of the papers proposing various vehicular applications
is usually to propose a data dissemination technique for this particular
application. Very few papers, if any, have been focused on how the applications
should be implemented in reality. In this chapter, we will, therefore,
describe some proposed solutions for the envisioned applications and,
thereby, also discuss suitable communication architectures and protocols
for these applications.
