Veins Simulator

Veins Simulator is an open source network simulation framework for running vehicular based Projects which can offer unrestrict extensibility. Veins simulator requires Omnet++ and sumo framework for simulation. In this Veins 3.0 is the current stable version which is download and also used for running vehicular network simulation framework.

Veins 4 alpha 2 is unstable version which is also available for download but unstable version which is still in testing environment. And also it Veins model can be use to solve challenges in vehicular Ad-hoc Network

Features of VEINS Simulator:

  • Online Reconfiguration.
  • Re-routing of vehicles.
  • Wide Range of Metrics are utilized in Veins simulator.
  • Fully detailed models of IEEE 802.11p.
  • IEEE 1609.4 DSRC/WAVE network layers.
  • Trusted Vehicular Mobility Model.

Advantages of VEINS:

  • Flexibility.
  • Acceptable Simulator.
  • Also Active community with support.
  • Beaconing.
  • Provide integrated solution.


Benefits of VEINS simulator:

  • Uses a TCP Connection and Python Scripts to enable SUMO whicj act as a mobility model in omnet++ simulation.
  • Nodes can be freely  interacted  with the running road traffic simulation.
  • Veins offers a comprehensive suite of IVC-specific models which serve as a modular framework for simulating applications.

Working Process of VEINS:

  • Network simulation is performed by omnet++ along with the physical layer modeling.
  • Both simulators are bi-directionally vechiles can be coupled.
  • Simulations are performed on the basis of domain specific models for vehicular networking.


  • WDM deployment in the local exchange network.
  • Universal Personal Networking.
  • Optical networking trends and evolution.
  • Performance of probabilistic caching and cache replacement policies for Content-Centric Networks.
  • Green Networking With Packet Processing Engines: Modeling and Optimization.
  • Why we still don’t know how to simulate networks.
  • A compound document framework for multimedia networking.
  • Information Centric Networks for Parallel Processing in the Datacenter.
