OMNeT++ Veins

OMNeT++ Veins framework includes a comprehensive suite of models to make vehicular network simulations as realistic as possible, without sacrificing speed.The GUI and IDE of OMNeT++ and SUMO can be used for quickly setting up and interactively running simulations.

Features of VEINS:

  • 100% open source software offering unrestricted extensibility.
  • Can be deployed on compute clusters for simulation in MRIP distributed parallel fashion.
  • Supported by solid and diverse user base from five continents.
  • Can employ validated, computationally inexpensive models of shadowing effects caused by buildings as well as by vehicles.
  • Relies on fully-detailed models of IEEE 802.11p and IEEE 1609.2 DSRC/WAVE network laters, including QoS channel access , multi channel operation, noise and interference effects.
  • Can import whole scenarios from OpenStreetMap, including buildings, speed limits, lane counts, traffic lights, access and turn restrictions.


Platforms supported by veins:

  • Windows.
  • Mac OS X.
  • Linux.
