System requirements:

  • Debian 10, Debian 11, Ubuntu 20.04 (other Linux distribution might work, too, but are not tested yet)
  • Veins 5.1 (which depends on)
    • OMNeT++ 5.6.2
    • SUMO 1.8.0
  • Conan 1.42.1 (A C/C++ package manager required to install PROJ 8.1.1)

You can find Veins 5.1 and its dependencies already installed in the virtual machines Instant Veins 5.1-i2


  1. Install Veins, OMNeT++, and SUMO in a single directory e.g., src (already done in Instant Veins 5.1-i2).

  2. Download Conan from http://conan.io/downloads.html and install it.

  3. Clone the space_Veins source files in the same directory as Veins, OMNeT++, and SUMO are located. (For Instant Veins 5.1-i2 it is /home/veins/src.)

    git clone https://github.com/veins/space_veins.git
  4. Go into the space_veins directory.

  5. Run the following Makefile targets

    make conan_deps
    make makefiles
  6. If all steps are finished successfully space_Veins is ready to use.
