Abstract

The connected vehicle is becoming a reality. Internet access onboard will indeed increase road safety and security thanks to the cooperative networking that it is expected among vehicles, roadside units and the Internet. Moreover, this connectivity will bring innovative driving assistance services and infotainment alike services for end users. This fact is endorsed by standardisation bodies like the ETSI or the 5G-PPP that are actively working on the definition of these innovative services and setting their requirements. The connected vehicle poses technological challenges that need to be addressed. The mobility has to be managed regardless the location of the vehicles to ensure connectivity. At the same time the required security and performance levels for the applications need to be ensured. In this paper, we present a realistic simulation framework to evaluate vehicular applications while the protocol to manage the mobility, NeMHIP, is running underneath. The simulation framework is based on the integration of the OMNeT++, SUMO, VEINS and VsimRTI simulation tools. Obtained results have been compared with the requirements defined by the 5G-PPP automotive white paper, ITU-T Y.1541 and 3GPP TS 22.105 standards with satisfactory results. Thus, we demonstrate that the NeMHIP protocol is suitable because it fulfils the requirements of the applications while it provides an essential mobility service. In addition, this work shows the validity of the simulation framework.
