Cross-Layer Mobile Chord P2P Protocol Design for VANET

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Efficient content distribution is one of the emerging applications in vehicular networks. To provide scalable content distribution in vehicular networks, Chord peer-to-peer overlay could be applied. Most P2P protocols, including Chord, are de-signed for wired-line network, and might perform poorly in mobile networks. Mobile Chord (MChord) is proposed to enhance the P2P performance over Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork (VANET). In addition, cross-layer design to improve MChord performance in VANET is also investigated. Extensive NS-2 simulations with vehicular mobility traces are conducted to evaluate the P2P overlay performance in VANET.
