Design elements - Global networks
"Intelligent vehicular ad hoc networks (InVANETs) use WiFi IEEE 802.11p (WAVE standard) and WiMAX IEEE 802.16 for easy and effective communication between vehicles with dynamic mobility. Effective measures such as media communication between vehicles can be enabled as well methods to track automotive vehicles. InVANET is not foreseen to replace current mobile (cellular phone) communication standards . ...
Communication capabilities in vehicles are the basis of an envisioned InVANET or intelligent transportation systems (ITS). Vehicles are enabled to communicate among themselves (vehicle-to-vehicle, V2V) and via roadside access points (vehicle-to-roadside, V2R) also called as Road Side Units (RSUs). Vehicular communication is expected to contribute to safer and more efficient roads by providing timely information to drivers, and also to make travel more convenient. The integration of V2V and V2R communication is beneficial because V2R provides better service sparse networks and long distance communication, whereas V2V enables direct communication for small to medium distances/areas and at locations where roadside access points are not available."

The vector stencils library "Global networks" contains 63 symbols for drawing the global network diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
The example "Design elements - Global networks" is included in the Vehicular Networking solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
