Christoph Sommer, "Vehicular Networking," Tutorial, International Conference on Networked Systems (NetSys 2015), Cottbus, Germany, March 09, 2015.


To stay at the forefront of innovation, research into vehicular networking has become a must for established automotive manufacturers and OEMs and, by extension, academia. It is driven by early positive results as an application of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs), inspired by the advent of autonomous vehicles on our roads, and backed by massive investments from the automotive industry. Finally, it is very much fueled by the most recent U.S. NHTSA press release to now prepare rulemaking for mandating cooperative vehicles: cars as members of a vehicular network. This has caused a major influx of researchers from industry and academia all over the world into a field that is immensely complex. Getting into this field has proven very challenging for the many newcomers and submissions to journals and conferences alike are ripe with “beginners’ mistakes” – some rooted in common misconceptions of wireless networks in general, many a repeat of early mistakes in applying wireless networking techniques to highly mobile networks, and even more simply ignoring current best practices in vehicular networking research. This goes for systems engineering just like for experimental and simulative performance evaluation. The tutorial is intended for newcomers, looking to get a quick start in this complex field; researchers from other fields of CS and ECE looking to tap into available funding and discover synergies with this rapidly growing field; practitioners who want to stay on top of current and future developments.
