Automatic vehicle location

This vehicular network diagram example was drawn on the base of picture illustrating the article "Automatic Vehicle Location: Rural Transit" from the website of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA), U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT).
"Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) systems calculate the real-time location of any vehicle equipped with a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) receiver. Data are then transmitted to the transit center with use of radio or cellular communications and can be used immediately for daily operations as well as archived for further analysis.
As a stand-alone technology, an AVL system can be used to monitor on-time performance. When combined with other technologies, AVL can deliver many benefits in the areas of fleet management, service planning, safety and security, traveler information, fare payment, vehicle component monitoring, and data collection. Since the greatest benefits from AVL are achieved by combining it with other Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technologies, AVL is most appropriate for large rural agencies with more than 30 vehicles that plan to implement a comprehensive ITS."

This VANET diagram example was drawn on the base of picture from the webpage "Security and Privacy in Location-based MANETs/VANETs" from the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences, the University of California, Irvine. [ics.uci.edu/~keldefra/manet.htm]
"A vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) uses cars as mobile nodes in a MANET to create a mobile network. A VANET turns every participating car into a wireless router or node, allowing cars approximately 100 to 300 metres of each other to connect and, in turn, create a network with a wide range. As cars fall out of the signal range and drop out of the network, other cars can join in, connecting vehicles to one another so that a mobile Internet is created. It is estimated that the first systems that will integrate this technology are police and fire vehicles to communicate with each other for safety purposes. Automotive companies like General Motors, Toyota, Nissan, DaimlerChrysler, BMW and Ford promote this term." [Vehicular ad hoc network. Wikipedia]
