CBVANET: A Cluster Based Vehicular Adhoc Network Model for Simple Highway Communication

VANET is a special class of Mobile Ad hoc Network. VANET is mainly used to model communication in a Vehicular environment where the vehicles are considered as VANET nodes with wireless links. In this paper an attempt has been made to create a new cluster model for efficient communication among the VANET nodes. For this purpose, taking the Simple Highway Vehicular model concept into consideration, a clustering model has been created. The proposed mobility model is called Simple HighWay mobility Model(SHWM). This paper focuses on the development of a clustering framework for communication among the VANET nodes. The various timings required for the formation of Clusters, Cluster head election time and Cluster head switching time are computed and presented.
