Safety applications of inter-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside communication that make use of Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) will often require reliable communication that provides guaranteed real-time message propagation. An important aspect of network dynamics is failure handling, as link/node failure due to high mobility of nodes introduces service disruption in wireless network. Since, service disruption depends on the reliability of the path, therefore it is important to take reliability into account during multicast member join. In this paper, the authors have proposed a Fuzzy ARTMAP based QoS Based Reliable Method (QBRM) to address this problem of routing in a dynamic QoS aware Multicast environment.
