Full Project Detail

Vehicular ad hoc networks (Vanet) are one of the most emerging technologies enabling several types of applications such as traffic management, driver assistance, and collision avoidance…etc.

VANET rely on communication between dynamically connected vehicles and static Road Side Units (RSU) to offer various applications. VANET have a massive potential to improve traffic efficiency, and road safety by exchanging critical information between nodes (vehicles and RSU), thus reducing the likelihood of traffic accidents. However, these types of communication networks have many security and privacy issues and challenges. Indeed, VANET are wireless, auto-organised, and distributed networks with high mobility patterns, running critical applications which reply on data confidentiality and/or integrity and should ensure drivers’ privacy.

In this project, you will be investigating new approach of communication protocol with privacy protection in VANET. The project will involve running simulation and experiments using network simulators such as OMNET++.
