Nowadays connectivity in the vehicles is becoming the base to enable safety, traffic efficiency, and infotainment applications. These applications require to exchange information with specific geographical locations. After a decade of research and standardization activities, a dedicated technology to support forwarding in Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) called GeoNetworking has been completed in Europe. This chapter will provide an overview of GeoNetworking features and functionalities describing geographical addressing and geographical forwarding in an easy and understandable way for both technical and non-technical readers.
