GrooveSim: a topography-accurate simulator for geographic routing in vehicular networks
Vehicles equipped with wireless communication devices are poised to deliver vital services in the form of safety alerts, traffic congestion probing and on-road commercial applications. Tools to evaluate the performance of vehicular networks are a fundamental necessity. While several traffic simulators have been developed under the Intelligent Transport System initiative, their primary focus has been on modeling and forecasting vehicle traffic flow and congestion from a queuing perspective. In order to analyze the performance and scalability of inter-vehicular communication protocols, it is important to use realistic traffic density, speed, trip, and communication models. Studies on multi-hop mobile wireless routing protocols have shown the performance varies greatly depending on the simulation models employed. We introduce GrooveSim, a simulator for geographic routing in vehicular networks to address the need for a robust, easy-to-use realistic network and traffic simulator. GrooveSim...
