A Mobicast Routing Protocol With Carry-and-Forward in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In vehicular networks, safety and comfort applications are two quite different kinds of applications to avoid the emergency traffic accident and enjoy the non-emergency entertainment. The comfort application drives the challenges of new non-emergency entertainments for Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs). In this paper, the authors investigate a new mobicast protocol to support comfort applications for a highway scenario in Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs). All vehicles located in a geographic zone (denoted as zone of relevance, ZOR) at time t, the mobicast routing is to disseminate the data message initiated from a specific vehicle to all vehicles which have ever appeared in ZOR at time t.
