Mobility-Based Clustering in VANETs Using Affinity Propagation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The recent research in cluster-based MAC and routing schemes for Vehicle Ad Hoc NETworks (VANETs) motivates the necessity for a stable VANET clustering algorithm. Due to the highly mobile nature of VANETs, mobility must play an integral role in cluster formation. The authors present a novel, mobility-based clustering scheme for Vehicle Ad hoc Networks, which utilizes the Affinity Propagation algorithm in a distributed manner. The proposed algorithm considers typical vehicular mobility during cluster formation to garner clusters with high stability.
