Abstract: Vehicular ad-hoc networks VANETs are now greatly affecting our daily lives. Autonomous driving vehicles becomes a hot research topic in automotive industry. Deploying autonomous vehicles scenarios requires realistic network through which all vehicles can communicate safely and efficiently. Network simulation prior direct implementation saves a lot of time and money, due to the high implementation cost of the vehicular ad-hoc networks.VANET simulators are not as same as mobile ad-hoc network MANET simulators; they have different characteristics and different architecture design, where VANET simulators are rapidly changing network topology in a frequent basis with high-speed moving nodes.In this paper, we will discuss the full architecture design of VANET simulator, which consists of three main parts: mobility generator, network simulator, and a middleware framework that combine both mobility and network simulator together, followed by a comparative study of the different parts of VANET simulator.
Keywords: VANET, MANET, Mobility generator, Network simulator, Frameworks, Simulation, Emulation, Federated and Integrated approach.
