The iNiT group was created to mainly investigate all the issues related to Vehicular Networks, from the Communications side, to the Information Systems related. Basically, Vehicular Networks are the technological support that allows the implementation and development of the so-called Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), enabling the communication between vehicles (V2V), and between vehicles and the infrastructure (V2I). Such networks have generated great interest in recent years (especially among researchers, public authorities, and car makers) due to the large number of applications that they can support.
Our group is doing an exhaustive study of most of Intelligent Transportation Systems issues, and we are also proposing new ideas to improve the implementation of vehicular networks in the very near future. We work on several levels, namely:
