Abstract: Developing context-aware telematic applications for vehicles equipped with smart embedded
computing devices and communication capabilities with the ability to provide the right information at
the right time and place has always been a challenge for researchers. We can address this issue by
providing the developers a way to model application specific abstractions for context-aware
communication and to test various algorithms and communication protocols in a simulated
environment. In this chapter we present certain requirements for modelling telematic application
specific abstractions and a framework for simulating context-aware information mediation in large
scale vehicular networks. We have used this framework to analyze the requirements by simulating
plain broadcasting and our relevance backpropagation algorithms to compare context dissemination
in large scale vehicular networks using OMNET++. Initial experiments show that taking the context
of vehicles into account significantly improves the bandwidth, availability and context signal-to-noise
