This paper presents the experimental framework currently being developed at INRIA on mobile traffic applications using ad hoc communication. In this paper we propose a set of modifications to the OLSR protocol in order to adapt it to vehicle ad hoc networks. This work is the fruit of a collaboration between two INRIA research teams: HIPERCOM and IMARA. HIPERCOM is working on ad hoc routing protocols and IMARA is working on intelligent vehicles.
