MANET marks the new age of the modern communication and it is a key technology to solve many applications such as telemedicine, environment monitoring, intelligent transport system (inter-vehicle communication) etc. In this paper a new MANET protocol dedicated to intelligent transport system: CIVIC (communication inter vehicule intelligente et cooperative) is described. CIVIC is a context aware routing protocol taking into account the location of each mobile node, road traffic, geographic environment (road map) etc. Moreover, CIVIC is implemented to support infrastructure and ad-hoc network, hybrid MANET protocol, and multi- support wireless access mediums. In this paper, we introduce the different worldwide leading research projects dedicated to inter- vehicle communication, the key features of CIVIC, the implementation of CIVIC on LiveNode sensor and the application project MobiPlus.
