Nowadays Dedicated Short Range Communications
(DSRC) systems are used to charge vehicles in highways and
other infrastructures. Nevertheless wireless communications are
getting pervasive within the automobile world, leading to a
vehicular communications environment where information is
exchanged between vehicles and the road infrastructure. Such
network may be supported by the recent Wireless Access for
Vehicular Environment (WAVE) standard, specifically tailored
for safety and infotainment information exchange within the
highly dynamic vehicular communication environment. This
paper describes the motivation, the typical application scenarios,
the underlying standards and a prototype implementation for the
WAVE based next generation DSRC systems that will support
safety critical and infotainment applications in vehicular
