Vehicular ad hoc networks (Vanets) play a critical role in enabling essential emergency safety applications (e.g., Forward Collision Warning) and subsequently help the driver deal with emergency situations, these emergency applications have strict different QoS requirements mainly on latency time. In this paper, the authors propose a Power Control Scheme, called PCS that adjusts the transmission power level to guarantee short delays for safety messages over 802.11p/DSRC, especially for occasional emergency messages. PCS aims to minimize contention within two-hop neighborhood of a vehicle under high-offered load conditions.
