The SINETIC FUI project aims to build a complete simulation environment handling both mobility and communication. We are interested here in a so-called system-level view, focusing on simulating all the components of the system (vehicle, infrastructure, management center, etc.) and its realities (roads, traffic conditions, risk of accidents, etc.). The objective is to validate the reference scenarios that take place on a geographic area where a large number of vehicles exchange messages using 802.11p protocol. This simulation tool is done by coupling the SUMO microscopic simulator and the ns-3 network simulator thanks to the simulation platform iTETRIS.
We have focused in this part of the project on how to reduce the execution time of large scale simulations. To this end, we designed a new simulation technique called Restricted Simulation Zone which consists on defining a set of vehicles responsible of sending the message and an area of interest around them in which the vehicles receive the packets.
