Vanets (Vehicular ad hoc networks) is used for communicating data between vehicles and with roadside infrastructures. Due to high mobility of vehicles the topology changes dynamically which degrades the performance of data access in VANETs. To overcome this problem, the authors use vehicle platoon aware data access solution in vehicular ad - hoc networks. Here vehicles use a part of their buffer to replicate data for other vehicles in the same platoon to share data with them.
