This paper investigates using extensive simulations the effects of a number of important system parameters in a typical MANETs, including node speed, pause time, traffic load, and node density on the performance of probabilistic flooding. The results reveal that most of these parameters have a critical impact on the reachability and the number of saved(More)
Many of the simulations reported in wireless networking literature contain several abstractions at the physical layer and the corresponding channel models. In particular, the basic simulation unit assumed in such simulations is the frame (or packet), which omits considerations of the signal processing details at the physical layer, such as frame(More)
In this paper, we present the Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) architecture, which was proposed and implemented by the team from Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden, that joined the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC) in 2011. The proposed CACC architecture consists of the following three main components, which are(More)
— Past research efforts have denoted the problematic behaviour of traditional TCP agents in MANET environments and have proposed various remedies across the networking stack. However, there has not been an overall performance evaluation of different TCP agents under varying mobility conditions which takes into account past experiences in MANET evaluation.(More)

Most existing routing protocols proposed for MANETs use flooding as a broadcast technique for the propagation of network control packets; a particular example of this is the dissemination of route requests (RREQs), which facilitate route discovery. In flooding, each mobile node rebroadcasts received packets, which, in this manner, are propagated(More)
Recent studies suggest that Self-organizing Time-Division Multiple Access (STDMA) might be a better medium access strategy in inter-vehicle communication networks than Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA), especially when considering safety focused applications. Although it is necessary to completely understand a protocol and the effect of its `turning(More)
Broadcasting in mobile ad hoc networks has traditionally been based on flooding, which swamps the network with large number of rebroadcast packets in order to reach all network nodes. The appropriate use of probabilistic broadcasting can reduce the number of packet transmission, effectively alleviating the problem of contention. In particular, a good(More)
