The proposed research project (Grant: 2015/07538-1) aims to build an infrastructure for enabling the smart cities, ranging from urban sensing, the storage of data, communication, until the construction of applications that benefit from this entire infrastructure. In this context, issues like data acquisition in vehicular networks, wireless sensor networks and unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as social data gathered from citizens and visitors through their communicating devices and their social network posts must be stored and used by applications with the goal of providing a database with different information about the city. The issues of how to support traffic with tight QoS requirements (no packet loss, and delays inferior to 1ms), and of designing a system capable at the same time of efficiently sustaining such traffic together with traffic from infotainment applications, are still open. The goal of the Visiting Fellow Research Project is to investigate how a VANET architecture, which integrates content-centric networking, software-defined networking, and context-aware floating content schemes, can properly support the very diverse set of applications and services currently envisioned for the vehicular environment.
