This document proposes a Context-Aware Navigator Protocol (CAN) for IP-based vehicular networks for cooperative navigation among vehicles in road networks. This CAN aims at the enhancement of driving safety through a light-weight driving information sharing method. The CAN protocol uses an IPv6 Neighbor Discovery (ND) option to convey driving information such as a vehicle's position, speed, acceleration/deceleration, and direction, and a driver's driving action (e.g., braking and accelerating).
