Welcome to the Second ACM International Workshop on Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks!
Vehicular ad hoc networks show an enormous potential to increase traveler safety and
comfort and can serve to improve the efficiency of the transportation infrastructure.
The creation of high-performance, highly reliable, highly scalable, and secure VANET
technologies, though, presents an extraordinary challenge to the wireless research
community: a high degree of communication reliability is needed under unfavorable
channel conditions. Clearly, the specificity of vehicular ad hoc networks in terms of
mobility behavior and applications scenarios and requirements makes VANET research
an exciting and demanding application- and purpose-driven sub-discipline of wireless
networking.The opportunities for vehicular ad hoc networks are growing rapidly.
In December 2003, the U.S. FCC approved 75 MHz of spectrum for Dedicated Short
Range Communications (DSRC), and the resulting DSRC system is expected to be
the first wide-scale VANET in North America. In Japan, two DSRC standards have been
adopted (the ARIB STD-T75 in 2001, the ARIB STD-T8 ... mehr
