Ariwheels is an info-mobility solution for urban environments, with access points deployed at both bus stops (forming thus a wired backbone) and inside the buses themselves. Such a network is meant to provide connectivity and services to the users of the public transport system, allowing them to exchange services, resources and information through their mobile devices. Ariwheels is both:

  • a protocol, based on Arigatoni and the publish/subscribe paradigm;

  • a set of applications, implementing the protocol on the different types of nodes;

  • a simulator, written in OMNET++ and recently ported to the ns2 simulator, see Fig 6 .
