VITP: an information transfer protocol for vehicular computing
Recent advances in wireless inter-vehicle communication systems enable the development of Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANET) and create significant opportunities for the deployment of a wide variety of vehicular applications and services. In this paper, we introduce the Vehicular Information Transfer Protocol (VITP), an application-layer communication protocol, which is designed to support the establishment of a distributed, ad-hoc service infrastructure over VANET. The VITP infrastructure can be used to provide locationbased, traffic-oriented services to drivers, using information retrieved from vehicular sensors and taking advantage of onboard GPS navigation systems. In this paper, we present the key design concepts of the protocol and the infrastructure, the protocol specification, simple examples of protocol interactions that support driver inquiries, and a simulation study of VITP performance properties.
