Vein is an open source network simulator to run Vehicular network simulation. We implement vein based on simulators OMNET++ and SUMO. OMNET++ is used for network simulator and sumo is used for road traffic simulation. We provide vein to offer a model for IVC (Inter vehicular communication) simulation. We provide GUI and IDE for OMNET++ and sumo to quickly set and run interactive simulations. We offer vein simulator final year projects which run on Mac Os X, Linux and windows. Vein provide extensive debugging capabilities which best results in Linux.

Vein Framework:

We adopt vein framework by the combination of traffic and network simulator called sumo and OMNET++ which designed in B.E/ B.Tech projects.

Sumo:To handle large road networks, we implement sumo which is an open source and a package of microscopic and continuous road traffic simulation which derived from Springer papers.

OMNET++: OMNET++ referred as an object oriented discrete event simulation framework. It ensures a simulation and mathematical model for network to evaluate their performance.

Modules in Veins:

We adopt veins modules which act as a modular framework to simulate applications. To implement student’s projects we classified modules as:

  • Obstacle Shadowing.
  • Two Ray Interference Model.
  • Platooning Extension for Veins.
  • Traci.
  • IEEE 802.11pand IEEE 1609.4 DSRC/ WAVE.
  • Veins LTE Extension.
  • Veins Simulator Projects Scenario:
  • Realistic map and realistic traffic:

We implement various scenarios in our projects and them categorized as two parts and given as:

VANET projects
VANET projects

It performs simulation for streets, road, traffic light and junctions.

Traffic Demand:

We ensure the details for travelling car speed, properties every car, direction, departure, destination time and positions.

Network Simulator Configuration:

We configure the networks by

  • Prepare realistic traffic and map in sumo.
  • Use network simulator to run vanet simulation.
  • Veins framework implement 802.11p with all default parameters in OMNET++.

Simulation Result:

We provide simulation result as: Using sumo we generate cars and then export to network simulator.

OMNET++ considers all cars as nodes and ensure simulation scenario. Vein change car scenario in sumo when there is modification in network.

Features of Veins Simulator:

We include the features of veins simulator are:

  • Single Workstation.
  • Trusted Vehicular Mobility Model.
  • Buildings As Well As By Vehicles.
  • Unrestricted Extensibility.
