Resumen: Future generations of Vehicular Networks and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) will play an important role in providing transport services more effectively and more securely. The next stage in ITS development will be greatly influenced by the integration of distributed systems and architectures, as well as by open and common standards and service-oriented architectures. This talk will consist in an overview about the major research projects related to the design of “cognitive” cars and smart roads applications, which we are currently investigating at the DIVA Strategic Research Network and PARADISE Research Laboratory, University of Ottawa. Next we shall focus on the main challenges, design issues and discuss some results obtained recently. Finally, if time permits, we will talk about LIVE testbed, a convergence of distributed simulation, wireless multimedia and vehicular sensor technologies we are developing at DIVA and PARADISE Research Laboratory for an urban vehicular grid. This testbed will facilitate and enable us to evaluate and design new protocols and applications for future generations of wireless vehicular and sensor network technologies.
