Reaching Spatial or Networking Saturation in VANET

In this paper, the authors investigate the network transition between non-saturation and saturation regimes for a Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork (VANET) which is composed of mobile nodes. They combine vehicular traffic theory, queuing model, and Markov chain to evaluate the performance of the network under spatial or networking saturation for multiple data classes over control channel and service channel. Their results indicate that the vehicle density growth can result in saturation of wireless medium around the RoadSide Unit (RSU), further resulting in buffer overflows at On Board Units (OBUs).
