Network Mobility Protocol for Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
The goal of the NEtwork MObility (NEMO) management is to effectively reduce the complexity of handoff procedure and keep the mobile devices connected to the Internet. Vehicle is moving so fast that it may cause the handoff and packet loss problems. Both of the problems will lower down the throughput of the network. To overcome these problems, the authors propose a novel NEMO protocol for Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork (VANET). In freeway, since every car is moving in a fixed direction with high moving speed, the car adopting their protocol can acquire IP address from the VANET through vehicle to vehicle communications.
