HYBRID SIMULATION NETWORK FOR VEHICULAR AD HOC NETWORK (VANET)

Abstract
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) plays a vital role in providing different means of traffic management and enables users to be better informed of traffic condition, promoting safer, coordinated and efficient use of transport network. Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) shows promising reliability and validity in ITS. But, it poses challenges to researchers in designing protocol specifically for VANET as the deployment of VANET in real world will incur high cost. Therefore, simulation and non-physical testbed implementation have been widely adopted by the VANET research community in the development and assessment of the new or improved system and protocol of VANET. This paper presents a viable simulation platform for network development. Besides, a code cast or better known as network coding, a data packet transmission method has been developed and introduced into VANET protocol using the presented platform to assess and determine the potential of the introduced simulation platform.
