Cars rapidly gain importance for the information and communication infrastructure in modern cities. The Car4ICT project aims at making cars the base for all communication systems in a city. To improve its stability and versatility stable network nodes are needed. Instead of deploying expensive and hard to maintain roadside units it is possible to use clusters of parking cars as stable and powerful nodes. In this thesis I used existing prototype implementations of Car4ICT and the Virtual Cord Protocol (VCP) to build a prototype of this concept. VCP is used as the routing protocol inside of a parking cluster. I built a system that allows the creation of large VCP networks with limited hardware and extended the VCP prototype with an implementation of a Distributed Hash Table (DHT). I further accelerated reliable data transmissions of the VCP prototype. Using DHT I enabled Car4ICT nodes to easily keep their service tables in sync. To conclude the integration of VCP into Car4ICT, however, some work remains to be done.
