Vehicles Tracking using Internet and Software Engineering Techniques

Jian Zhang, Olivier Monga


Vehicles in a grid are only a few hops away from the infrastructure (Wi-Fi, cellular, satellite, etc.). Protocol and application design must account for easy access to the Internet during normal operation. At the same time, the vehicles are among the few communications nodes that can continue to operate when the Internet goes away, during urban emergency, with enough reserve power to establish a vehicle based emergency network. To this end the results are given to examine innovative peer to peer content sharing applications that can still operate with intermittent connectivity and sporadic vehicular traffic and connectivity. In this paper, a novel vehicle tracking and monitoring system is designed using software engineering principles.
