Course Overview

This course will introduce vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) and facilitate a discussion of issues involved in building VANETs. These issues include physical communications limitations, special characteristics of vehicular networks, possible applications (collision avoidance, incident notification, etc.), security, user privacy, and driver distraction. One goal of this class is to produce work suitable for submitting to the ACM International Workshop on Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET) to be held in Montreal in September.

Student responsibilities in the course will include reading papers, writing summaries, presenting a topic, and leading a class discussion on that topic. Students will also be responsible for conducting a research project and writing a workshop-level paper on the project. Students will take a final exam based on course topics.

For those interested, here are a couple of survey papers:
