In a near future, wireless networks will be one of the key technologies for road traffic management in smart cities. Vehicles and dedicated roadside units should be interconnected through wireless technologies such as IEEE 802.11p (WAVE). Traffic light and road signs may also take their place in this architecture, forming a large-scale network of small devices that report measurements, take orders from a control center, and are able to take decisions autonomously based on their local perception. Such a network shares many similarities with classical wireless sensor and actuator networks, starting with its distributed organization and with the role of the control center. However, its topology, and subsequently the appropriate selection of protocols and algorithms, will be strongly influenced by each city's characteristics. In this article, we characterize and discuss probable topologies of these networks. The aim of this work is to provide network models that can be used to evaluate protocols and algorithms using realistic scenarios in place of generic random graphs. We deploy such networks over 52 city maps extracted from OpenStreetMap and characterize the resulting graphs, with a particular focus on connectivity aspects (degree distribution and connected components). The tools, the complete datasets, OMNeT++ network models are available freely online. [less ▲]

Recent advances in the field of intelligent transportation systems have focused on the use of wireless networks to link vehicles and road infrastructure. Applications that might result from such networks range from the adaptive management of traffic lights to the detection of traffic jams and accidents. Whatever the case may be, it seems important to explore the possibilities and limitations of such networks, which the literature often portrays in a somewhat idealistic way (e.g. no packet loss, fully connected sensors, etc.). In this paper, we study the deployment of wireless sensor networks at intersections in some of the world's major cities and characterize their topologies. Using a propagation model that corresponds to a 2.4GHz IEEE 802.15.4 network interface, we focus our study on the global connectivity of graphs resulting from different networks. By deploying this type of network over 52 city and region maps extracted from OpenStreetMap, we show that cities can reasonably be classified into three network structure categories of low connectivity (i.e. a high number of connected components) and that it should be feasible to improve the networks by adding sensors. All the tools and the complete dataset are freely available online. [less ▲]
