On the Formation of Vehicle Clusters
Node mobility in a vehicular network is strongly affected by the driving behavior such as route choices. While route choice models have been extensively studied in the transportation community, as far as the authors know, the effects of preferred route on vehicular network simulations have not been discussed much in the networking literature. In this paper, they set out to understand the effect of different parameters such as route choices, traffic lights, RSU locations on the formation of vehicle clusters. They also show how the dynamic of vehicle clusters change over time using real-world traces.
