Summary This book discusses VANETs (Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks) or VCS (Vehicular Communication Systems), which can improve safety, decrease fuel consumption, and increase the capacity of existing roadways and which is critical for the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) industry. It provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental principles behind Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETS) and the rapidly growing need for their further development; a thorough overview of the design and development of key technologies and devices; explores the practical application of this technology by outlining a number of case studies, testbeds and simulations employing vehicular communications and networks. -- Edited summary from book
