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:
Generate floating car data FCD of any road network with traffic simulator SUMO SUMO .
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.
- Analyse and visualise
- Visualize graph connectivity with GraphStream
- calculate connectivity statistics on the graph
- visualize traffic performance of the traffic with SUMO
