    Abstract

    Road traffic problems are growing nowadays because of the sharp increase in the number of vehicles on the road. This can directly affect the traffic flow and create congestion points which in turn can cause car accidents. However, road density in terms of number of cars may represent an opportunity to facilitate inter-vehicular communication and optimize packet routing in a Vehicular Adhoc Network (VANET). There have been a number of research activities in both road traffic simulation and IVC, however little have addressed the best trade-off between road density in terms of number of cars and the quality of vehicular communication and consequently their implications on road incidents as well as transmission delays and packet loss. In this paper, we propose to study the relationship between road traffic and vehicular communication in terms of road density and car speed in one side, and communication delay, and packet loss in the other side. We also propose to describe the design and implementation of the simulator VIE (Vehicular Information Exchange Simulator).
