Dominik S. Buse, "Improving Traveling Times in Paderborn using Vehicular Networking," Master's Thesis, Department of Computer Science, University of Paderborn, February 2016. (Advisors: Falko Dressler and Christoph Sommer)


Vehicular networking technologies are emerging and may help to solve traffic optimization problems. Simulation can be used to evaluate applications before hardware can be deployed. But it requires realistic and up-to-date scenarios and there are no well-established ones in the community yet. This thesis describes a scenario generation toolchain and its application to create a city-scale scenario. The resulting scenario covers the whole administrative area of the city of Paderborn and provides 24 hours of traffic with a total number of 210 000 trips and up to 3000 vehicles driving at the same time. In addition, I examined a traffic light controller using vehicular networking to explore the potential of vehicular networking for travel time improvement. It outperformed two classical controllers without networking capabilities, which rely on static schedules and induction loop detectors instead. I have shown that there is potential to improve traveling times (in Paderborn) using vehicular networking. To allow further investigation, the simulation scenario will be released for public use and cooperative improvement.
