Simon Merschjohann, "Prototype Implementation of the Car4ICT Framework," Master's Thesis, Department of Computer Science, University of Paderborn, August 2016. (Advisors: Florian Hagenauer and Christoph Sommer)


By using vehicular communication, different solutions to problems can be found that are otherwise hard to realize. The reliability and availability of today's communication infrastructure can still vary depending on the region and different influences can lead to a collapsed network. By extending the communication by cars, it provides the chance to improve the current infrastructure significantly. Nonetheless, to achieve this, architectures are required that focus on the specific requirements needed for highly dynamic networks. The Car4ICT architecture tries to make cars a central resource for communication by providing a service infrastructure that allows to flexibly offer services. After this architecture was already successfully tested in a simulation, this thesis developed a prototype that shows the functionality in form of a demo application and demonstrates the architecture on real hardware. By providing a simulation layer, it is further possible to simulate bigger scenarios with less hardware. This thesis presents the developed prototype, which was evaluated on the available hardware, including its according limits, by running multiple test scenarios. It shows that the prototype is capable of running applications with a lot of load and proves that the Car4CT architecture including the service discovery is functional on hardware. It also enables the evaluation of bigger scenarios by providing the Topology Manager enabling the simulation of multiple nodes on a single hardware device. All in all, it proves the functionality of the Car4ICT architecture and enables the possibility for improvements concerning routing and interoperability with other systems.
