Vehicle ad hoc networks are considered mobile networks where the nodes are mobile objects and can change their positions within an environment over time. These objects can be connected at any time according to a predefined strategy. Simulating this kind of network needs high attention to many details. Moreover, the literature lacks works that describe the requirements of simulating such networks. Therefore, this work tries to describe the requirements of simulating vehicle networks (VANETs). Moreover, the goal is to determine what is needed to simulate vehicle networks in terms of the distribution of vehicles, the movement patterns, and the routing protocols used. The simulation results show interesting facts about the VANET networks and the best strategies to minimize the consumption of network resources. Finally, this work considers two communication technologies among network nodes; Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6.
