Analysis of the Information Storage Capability of VANET for Highway and City Traffic
Vehicles in VANET can form wireless ad hoc mesh networks (VMeshes) that are mobile, constantly changing both in size and the geographic area they cover. The authors focus on how the VMeshes can be used to capture and retain certain transient information on the road within a given region of interest for a certain period of time, without any infrastructure support. In this paper, they study this ''Storage capability'' of VANET for highway and city traffic. Particularly, they studied different properties (average life time and deletion time) of the VANET storage for both 1-D highway traffic and 2-D city wide traffic.
