The Veins project team have announced Veins 2.0, the latest version of their vehicular network simulation framework for OMNeT++. Veins is an open source Inter-Vehicular Communication (IVC) simulation framework composed of an event-based network simulator and a road traffic micro-simulation model, containing numerous improvements and new features.
This release continues the framework's six year tradition of providing a comprehensive set of high quality models for the simulation of Inter Vehicle Communication (IVC) to an ever growing user base; now spanning 5 continents, including universities, governmental bodies, and independent research institutes as well as most major European automobile manufacturers.
Full source code, a beginner's tutorial, documentation, and the publication list are available at http://veins.car2x.org/
Like previous versions, Veins 2.0 is based on pure Open Source software offering unrestricted extensibility, relies on SUMO, a trusted vehicular mobility model and implementation by the Transportation and Traffic Science community, and allows for online re-configuration and re-routing of vehicles in reaction to network packets.
The following list names only some of the features that come with the new release:
Changes from the last release candidate (veins-2.0-rc2) include:
Detailed descriptions of all employed models and the results of extensive model validation can be found in the peer reviewed publications linked from http://veins.car2x.org/
I would like to invite everyone to download and try out Veins 2.0 -- as always, we will be happy to help with any open questions or problems during migration!
