Abstract

Vehicular Ad hoc Network (VANET) is the cutting edge technology for smart transportation. VANET becomes an important aspect of the Intelligent Transport System (ITS). Different safety and non-safety applications have been developed for VANET. The inspiration behind VANET is to provide safe, and pleasant journeys to the drivers and passengers. Although the quality of software depends upon its architecture, most of them do not give proper attention to the consideration of Software-Oriented Architecture (SOA) for providing safety and non-safety ITS services in VANET. To address this issue, we proposed an efficient software architecture by highlighting the important operations and services of the system. The performance of the proposed architecture is evaluated by several design metrics and the results are compared with a state-of-the-art solution. The results showed that our proposed architecture has low coupling and high cohesion factors. Furthermore, the results reveal that our architecture is less complex and more reusable. From the results, we conclude that the proposed architecture is suitable for providing safety and non-safety ITS services and will pave the way for the implementation of the futuristic vision of the ITS.
