An Efficient Destination-Based Data Management Policy for Vehicular Networks

The Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork (VANET) takes the advantage of the relative mobility of the vehicles to opportunistically share dynamic information when they meet, aiming to avoid accidents and traffic jams, get local information of the nearby places, enjoy entertainment applications among others. However, the shared information must be handled properly, saving bandwidth and tackling the unnecessary duplication of data, preventing the scalability problem and congestion. The current solutions of these problems incorporate the concept of Relevance to share the information in a clever way, but they do not exploit the advantage of knowing the destination of the vehicles and context-aware services to follow behavior patterns.
