The goal of this workshop is to present and discuss recent advances in
the development of wireless vehicular ad hoc networking (VANET)
technologies. Based on short- to medium-range communication systems
(vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside), vehicular ad hoc networks
will enable vehicular safety applications including collision and other
safety warnings as well as non-safety applications like real-time
traffic congestion and routing information, high-speed tolling, mobile
infotainment, and many others.
The creation of high-performance, highly reliable, highly scalable, and
secure VANET technologies, though, presents an extraordinary challenge
to the wireless research community: a high degree of communication
reliability is needed under unfavorable channel conditions. Clearly,
the specificity of vehicular ad hoc networks in terms of mobility
behavior and applications scenarios and requirements makes VANET
research an exciting and demanding application- and purpose-driven
sub-discipline of wireless networking.
Following the successes of VANET 2004 held in Philadelphia and VANET 2005
held in Cologne, Germany, the Third ACM International Workshop on
Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks will be held in Los Angeles, September 29,
2006, in conjunction with MobiCom 2006.
