VANET 2007

4th ACM Workshop on Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

Hilton Montreal Bonaventure, Montréal, QC, Canada
10 September 2007


Held in conjunction with the 13th Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking (MobiCom 2007), sponsored by ACM Sigmobile, this workshop was focusing on research issues around vehicular ad-hoc networks for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside communcation.


The goal of this workshop was to present and discuss recent advances in the development of wireless vehicular ad hoc networking (VANET) technologies.  Based on short- to medium-range communication systems (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside), vehicular ad hoc networks will enable vehicular safety applications (including collision and other safety warnings) as well as non-safety applications (like real-time traffic congestion and routing information, high-speed tolling, mobile infotainment, and many others).

Participation of CVIS

CVIS IP Coordinator was invited as keynote speaker for the event to share his vision and experience within the CVIS project on DSRC technology, ad-hoc networking in the vehicle space and some of the deployment prospects of this exciting technology. It was also a great opportunity to bring the European and US activities closer together.
