Extensive work has been done for optimal management of scratch-pad memory (SPM) all assuming that the SPM is assigned a fixed address space. The main target objects to be placed on the SPM have been code and global memory since their sizes and locations are not changed dynamically. We propose a novel idea of dynamic address mapping of SPM with the(More)
Roadside Unit (RSU) is an essential unit in a vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) for collecting and analyzing traffic data given from smart vehicles. Furthermore, RSUs can take part in controlling traffic flow for vehicle's secure driving by broadcasting locally analyzed data, forwarding some important messages, and communicating with other RSUs, and soon.

In this paper, we propose a timestamp series approach to defend against Sybil attack in a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) based on roadside unit support. The proposed approach targets the initial deployment stage of VANET when basic roadside unit (RSU) support infrastructure is available and a small fraction of vehicles have network communication(More)
A vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) allows vehicles to share traffic information and to alert each other of emergency events. To achieve this goal, a security mechanism must be designed to guarantee that no malicious vehicles can intercept, manipulate, or modify the traffic information without being detected. In this paper, we present two novel approaches to(More)
—In this paper, we propose two certificate mechanisms for preventing the Sybil attack in a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET): the timestamp series approach and the temporary certificate approach. We focus on an early-stage VANET when the number of smart vehicles is only a small fraction of the vehicles on the road and the only infrastructure components(More)
A vehicular network must ensure a trust relationship among participating “smart vehicles” (vehicles installed with wireless network devices) and roadside infrastructure in order to maximize the benefit provided by the network. In this paper, we present practical ways to provide reliable reputation scores for vehicles in a vehicular network.(More)
In this paper we propose a dynamic code overlay technique of synchronous data-flow (SDF)-modeled program for low-end embedded systems which lack MMU-support. With this technique, the system can utilize expensive SRAM memory more efficiently by using flash memory as code storage. SRAM is divided into several regions called overlay slots. A data-flow block or(More)
In a Vehicular Ad-hoc Network Environment, roadside units (RSU), which are traffic data transmitters located statically on the roads, are the most essential infrastructural units for supporting seamless communications. In this paper, we propose an improved traffic flow based RSU allocation strategy that places the least number of RSUs at the most popular(More)
