One of the most exciting objectives for research in the next generation of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (WMAN) is building the wireless information exchange model for car-to-car or car-to-infrastructure communication. The proposed in this research framework, called VehINet, is in line with both approaches' services, provides all necessary functionality and has a great potential for Local Based Services (LBS).

The overall aim of this dissertation is presenting a new architecture for ad-hoc wireless communication network to exchange of information between vehicles in urban environment. In such a network, the nodes communicate with each other directly or through each other (the so called multi-hop mode).

This Vehicular Interaction Network (VehINet) fulfils two information delivery objectives: to avoid driving hazards and to deliver diverse web-based services (IP- based) to drivers and passengers.

Simulation tests have proved the feasibility and effectiveness of communicational infrastructure to service applications based on this model. The usefulness of introduced solutions for improving the performance has also been measured here. Furthermore, distributed MAC protocol as the base layer to cater routing and QoS has been investigated and the performance of probable algorithms has been tested for core services. In addition, the routing issue has been thoroughly studied and candidate protocols have been tested for two types of communicational system in this research.

The simulation environment was also useful to evaluate a number of QoS issues linked to the Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) and to measure the effect of each factor on service quality. The simulator environment also proved the tolerance of VehINet against external factors on service quality.

I believe that the presented model and the results of this research can be used as a baseline for vehicular communication study and provide the guideline for better implementation of mobile networks in future.
