Abstract

Vehicular Ad hoc networks (VANETs) are the relevant form of ubiquitous computing. Several protocols are being developed for V2R (vehicle to road side) and V2V (Vehicle to Vehicle) communication and the notion of intelligent vehicles is nurturing very rapidly. We have tested the existing WIFI protocol for V2V communication especially at high speed. We have proved, with the help of real life experiments and analytical justification, that WIFI is a successful means of communication between vehicles even at very high speed (i.e. 120 mph relative). Furthermore, several useful and novel applications (like parking, tourist information center, congestion control, advertisement campaign, shortest route, weather reporting, file sharing and on-board gaming) are suggested.
