Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is a kind of special wireless ad hoc network, which has the characteristics of high node mobility and fast topology changes. VANET has become an active area of research, standardization, and development because it has tremendous potential to improve vehicle and road safety, traffic efficiency and convenience as well as comfort to both drivers and passengers. Vehicular networks will not only provide safety and lifesaving applications, but they will become a powerful communication tool for their users. This paper presents the aspects related to this field to help researchers and developers to understand and distinguish the main features surrounding VANET.
