Abstract

CarNet is an application for a large ad hoc mobile network system that scales well without requiring a fixed network infrastructure to route messages. Car-Net places radio nodes in cars, which communicate using Grid, a novel scalable routing system. Grid uses geographic forwarding and a scalable distributed location service to route packets from car to car with-out flooding the network. CarNet will support IP connectivity as well as applications such as cooperative highway congestion monitoring, fleet tracking, and discovery of nearby points of interest.
