    abstract = { Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) routing protocols and Network Mobility (NEMO) Basic Support are considered keytechnologies for vehicular networks. MANEMO, that is, the combination of MANET (for infrastructureless communications) andNEMO (for infrastructure-based communications) offers a number of benefits, such as route optimization or multihoming. Withthe aim of assessing the benefits of this synergy, this paper presents a policy-based solution to distribute traffic among multiplepaths to improve the overall performance of a vehicular network.  An integral vehicular communication testbed has been developedto carry out field trials. First, the performance of the Optimized Link State Routing protocol (OLSR) is evaluated in a vehicularnetwork with up to four vehicles. To analyze the impact of the vehicles' position and movement on network performances, anintegrated evaluation environment called AnaVANET has been developed. Performance results have been geolocated using GPSinformation. Second, by switching from NEMO to MANET, routes between vehicles are optimized, and the final performance isimproved in terms of latency and bandwidth. Our experimental results show that the network operation is further improved withsimultaneous usage of NEMO and MANET. },
