This theme calls for developing efficient techniques for multimedia content delivery and adaptation in order to provide vehicular networks with multimedia support and enable the envisioned services. To this end, this theme is organized in three projects that will concentrate research on service oriented architectures, efficient multimedia streaming protocols, audio and video codecs tailored for vehicular networks, and multimedia content adaptation to cope with the intrinsic QoS requirements of heterogeneous vehicular networks.

Project 3.1: Service Oriented Architecture for VANets
Project 3.2: Multimedia Content Delivery over Vehicular Networks
Project 3.3: QoS and Information Provisioning and Adaptation
