This paper investigates the performance of Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) services over Vehicular Networks (VANETs) that are assisted by Road Side Units (RSU). More specifically, an analytical study of RSU dimensioning and a respective module is designed and developed in a simulated VANET environment. Two V2I application scenarios (e.g. car crash, spot weather) are considered in order to evaluate the impact of RSUs, vehicles’ size and speed and car crash start time and duration on applications’ performance. It is shown that the VANET network metrics (Packet Loss and Packet Delivery Ratio) are affected by the available MAC Bit rates and application scenarios. Mobility model metrics (Total Busy Time and Total CO2 Emissions) are also affected by the different application scenarios, number and type of vehicles.
