The Vehicular Delay-Tolerant Networks (VDTN) Euro-NF joint research project
The Vehicular Delay-Tolerant Networks (VTDN) project proposed a novel architecture for VDTN. Besides positioning the bundle layer below the network layer, it employs out-of-band signaling and devises the separation of the control plane and data plane. A laboratory prototype was created to demonstrate this approach. The project also developed new applications, fragmentation mechanisms, content storage and retrieval mechanisms, dropping and scheduling policies, and routing protocols for VDTNs.
