FCD2VANET project allows to present floating car data (FCD) as a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET).

FCD is floating car data, i.e. localisation data collected from moving vehicles FCD.

VANETs is a vehicular ad hoc network, i.e. wireless networks consisting of moving vehicles VANET VANETs are a key technology in a concept of Connected Vehicles, that aims in improving traffic efficiency, safety and convenience CC.

Real-world experiments of large-scale VANETs are impossible, thus computer simulations are necessary. Simulation of VANETs is complex, because the underlying network topology reproduces a specific mobility of vehicles, that impacts the connectivity among nodes. Moreover, networks are highly dynamic, time-variant and often of large scale.


SUMO2VANET allows to:

  1. Generate floating car data FCD of any road network with traffic simulator SUMO SUMO .

  2. Generate your VANET -a dynamic graph with vehicles as nodes and connections between vehicles as edges.

    Edges can be specified based on:

    • Euclidean distance
    • DSRC wireless range (using NS3 simulator ns-3 )

    VANET graph generated to a general format file .csv.

  3. Analyse and visualise
    • Visualize graph connectivity with GraphStream
    • calculate connectivity statistics on the graph
    • visualize traffic performance of the traffic with SUMO
