Abstract

We investigate the potentials of a vehicular cloud based on parked vehicles as a spatio-temporal network and storage infrastructure. Vehicular networking solutions have been investigated for more than a decade but recent standardization efforts just enable a broad use of this technology to build large scale Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). One of the key questions is whether some pre-deployed infrastructure is needed to enable and to boost vehicular networks. We see many benefits in such infrastructure to store information and to provide connectivity among the vehicles. Yet, instead of using Roadside Units (RSUs), we envision to rely on parked vehicles to provide such vehicular cloud services. In this paper, we demonstrate the feasibility of this idea using the Virtual Cord Protocol (VCP) protocol to enable dynamic cloud services. Our simulation results indicate that this concept is sound and scales even with a highly dynamic number of parkers on the streets.
