Exploring Interactions in Vehicular Networks


Vehicular networks are networks comprised by vehicles trav-eling cities and highways. During their trajectories, these vehicles interact with other vehicles and road side units in order to make safer and enjoyable trac. These interactions may be influenced by several factors. To mention a few: vehicle speed, roads condition, time of day and weather. Moreover, driver behavior and its interests can influence in vehicle features. In this context, the Vehicular Social Networks arise as a new perspective to vehicular networks, where the vehicles " socialize " and share common interests. In this work, we evaluate the behavior of vehicles using two mobility scenarios, in order to classify them according to the interactions performed, identifying common interests and similar routines. Thus, we use metrics of complex networks and statistical techniques. Results prove the existence of routines and human features in Vehicular Networks.
