Connectivity analysis of Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
(VANETs) involves the study of static and dynamic characteristics
of the network. Realistic mobility models are essential for both
aspects, in order to produce valid configurations of the position
of vehicles in one static instant, and to dynamically move such
vehicles in an interval of time. Focusing on static connectivity
evaluation, we extend the state-of-the-art of the realism of urban
mobility models for VANETs, by proposing and implementing
an analysis based on a stereoscopic aerial survey over a large
European city. Our static connectivity metrics show important
differences compared to the model and simulation based results
described in the VANET literature.
