Abstract: In this paper, we present a network architecture for vehicle communication based on Mobile IP. The special network environment of a car allows optimizations but also requires modifications of existing approaches. We identify these issues and discuss the integration of possible solutions into the framework. For example, location information provided by a car navigation system can be used to improve handoff decisions and connectivity. To evaluate the architecture, simulation studies were carried out with the ns Network Simulator. This paper also gives an overview of the necessary modifications and extensions to ns and additional tools to simplify future research in this area.
