— A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any existing infrastructure. Since not many MANETs are currently deployed, research in this area is mostly simulation based. Random Waypoint is the commonly used mobility model in these simulations. Random Waypoint is a simple model that may(More)
Accident (a) Accident Accident Forward with highest p (b) Accident T = 0 T = τ T Accident ACCEPTED FROM OPEN CALL INTRODUCTION Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) differ from usual mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) in many different aspects. First, VANETs consist of mostly highly mobile nodes moving in the same or opposite directions. Vehicles moving along(More)

— A Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) may exhibit a bipolar behavior, i.e., the network can either be fully connected or sparsely connected depending on the time of day or on the market penetration rate of the wireless communication devices. In this paper, we use empirical vehicle traffic data measured on I-80 freeway in California to develop a comprehensive(More)
—Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) require a mechanism to help authenticate messages, identify valid vehicles, and remove malevolent vehicles. A Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) can provide this functionality using certificates and fixed public keys. However, fixed keys allow an eavesdropper to associate a key with a vehicle and a location, violating(More)
—Broadband sounding of the vehicle-to-vehicle channel is reported in suburban, rural, and highway environments. A direct sequence spread spectrum waveform based on zero correlation zone sequences was used with an instantaneous bandwidth of about 40 MHz. Cumulative distribution functions are presented for the maximum excess delay, RMS delay spread, and(More)
—An experimental study of the Doppler coherence time properties of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) wireless channels at 5.9 GHz in both rural and highway environments is presented. Simultaneous RF and mobility measurements were conducted in environments near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The average Doppler spread was observed to depend linearly on effective speed,(More)
— We develop a detailed approach to study how mobility impacts the performance of reactive MANET routing protocols. In particular we examine how the statistics of path durations including PDFs vary with the parameters such as the mobility model, relative speed, number of hops, and radio range. We find that at low speeds, certain mobility models may induce(More)
