In order to realize the E-Road vision, real systems are needed that can be deployed on cars and tested under real traffic conditions.
TrafficView is an application that uses car-to-car wireless communication to disseminate and gather information about the vehicles on the road for real-time safety warnings and route planning.

EZCab: EZCab is an application for locating and booking free cabs in densely crowded traffic environments (like Manhattan, where looking for a free cab can be quite an annoying experience). Instead of calling a cab company or merely ''gesturing'' to negotiate a cab for her destination, a client can simply inject a Smart Message through her cell phone or handheld device, which seamlessly performs the same action.

Adaptive Traffic Lights: We propose an adaptive traffic light system based on wireless communication between vehicles and fixed controller nodes deployed in intersections, which has significant advantages over existing architectures in terms of both cost and performance.

Highways with Reservation Lanes: Intelligent Lane Reservation System for Highways (ILR) is a system that provides differentiated services on highways, allowing drivers to reserve a slot on a high-priority lane by paying a premium price.

Content Sharing for In-Car Entertainment: The current focus in VANET research has been on enabling safety applications; however VANETs provide a great opportunity for enabling non-safety applications such as traffic querying and multimedia content sharing between vehicles. We propose a network architecture that makes use of wireless links (high-bandwidth but intermittent connectivity) for data transfer coupled with already ubiquitous cellular internet connection for signalling and control messages.
