The FleetNet project1 [1,2,3] develops a platform for inter-vehicle communications based on ad hoc networking principles.With an ad hoc network established by moving vehicles, a realm of applications – ranging from exchange of emergency warnings or sensor data to unicast communication between passengers of different vehicles and to integration of the vehicular ad hoc network with the Internet through static or mobile FleetNet gateways – could be enabled in a low-latency, robust and low-cost fashion.
