In this paper, we summarize a study on related Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) standards, some past research projects and propose a solution for a service platform in a vehicular environment. We present and analyse the measurements taken with our developed service supporting platform and evaluate the feasibility of store and forward mechanisms and also dierent types of communication: multi-hop, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), Infrastructure-to-Vehicle (I2V) between two Road Side Units (RSUs) and an On-Board Unit (OBU) (installed in a vehicle). Our study shows the practicability and possibility of transmitting data in such an environment with little packet loss and latency.
