Numerous efforts are currently under progress to enhance the safety and efficiency of vehicular traffic through intelligent transportation systems. In addition, the growing demand for access to data and information from human users on the go has created the need for advanced vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicleto- roadside communication systems capable of high data rates and amenable to high degrees of node mobility. Vehicular communications and networks are expected to be used for a number of purposes such as for enabling mobile users to transfer data and information from other networks such as the Internet and also for implementing services such as Intersection Decision Systems (IDS), Automated Highway Systems (AHS), and Advanced Vehicle Safety Systems (AVS). In this chapter the authors describe medium access control (MAC) and routing protocols for vehicular networks and the various factors that affect their design and performance.
