TrafRoute: A Different Approach to Routing in Vehicular Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In the near future vehicular networks based on wireless technology will be part of the people lives. Efficient and robust routing algorithms will play a key role in the success of such technology. In this paper, the authors present TrafRoute, an efficient and robust routing scheme for vehicular networks, suitable for both Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communications. TrafRoute introduces a novel approach to routing that involves landmark-based routes and forwarder self-election, exploiting the knowledge of the underlying road network. They demonstrate TrafRoute's efficiency and robustness through simulation studies performed with accurate mobility and propagation models.
