Resum: In the last years, wireless networks have become a widely spread type of communication technology and also a challenging scientific area for new fields of research. Many contributions in ad hoc networks, such as WSNs (Wireless Sensor Networks) and VANETs (Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks), have been proposed. Nowadays, the huge amount of cars in transit has raised a big interest in vehicular communication technologies. A new type of network has been developed, named HSVN (Hybrid Sensor and Vehicular Network) in which WSNs and VANETs cooperate with the aim of improving road safety. Recent projects, such as CVIS [1] and COMeSafety [2], are focused on improving the road driving. This type of approaches will warn the driver and the co-pilot of any event occurred in the road ahead, such as traffic jam, accidents, bad weather, etc. This way, the number of traffic accidents may decrease and many lives might be saved. Besides, a better selection of non-congested roads will help to reduce pollution. In addition, other attractive services, such as downloading of multimedia services or Internet browsing, would be easily available through infrastructure along the roadside. Transportation in motorways will be easier, safer and more comfortable for passengers. In this paper a HSVN platform is presented, also a communications protocol between VANETs and WSNs is described and evaluated using the NCTUns [3] simulator.
