This chapter introduces an integrated network and traffic simulation platform, called NCTUns. This platform provides the capabilities of road network simulation, communication and network protocol simulation, vehicular traffic simulation, and a feedback loop among them. As such, it is very suitable for advanced wireless vehicular ad hoc network research where a vehicle needs to change its moving behavior after receiving a message from a neighboring vehicle or from an infrastructure network. In this chapter, we present the platform architecture of NCTUns and illustrate its operations for conducting advanced wireless vehicular ad hoc network research.
