Executive Summary

Deploying city-wide 802.11 access points has made possible internet access in a vehicle; nevertheless it is challenging to maintain client performance at vehicular speed especially when multiple mobile users exist. This paper considers the association control problem for vehicular networks in drive thru Internet scenarios. In particular, the authors aim to improve the overall throughput and fairness for all users. The authors design efficient algorithms to achieve the objectives through several techniques including approximation. The simulation results demonstrate that the algorithms can achieve significantly better performance than conventional approaches.
