For many people, driving is a routine activity where people drive to the same destinations using the same routes on a regular basis. Many drivers, for example, will drive to and from work along a small set of routes, at about the same time every day of the working week. Similarly, although a person may shop on different days or at different times, they will(More)
In this paper, we report the first complete version of a multi-hop broadcast protocol for vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET). Our results clearly show that broadcasting in VANET is very different from routing in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) due to several reasons such as network topology, mobility patterns, demographics, traffic patterns at different times(More)
Numerous local incidents occur on road networks daily, many of which may lead to congestion and safety hazards. If vehicles can be provided with information about such incidents or traffic conditions in advance, the quality of driving can be improved significantly in terms of time, distance, and safety. Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) have newly emerged(More)
Existing learning networks and architectures are not suited to handle autonomous driving or driver assistance in complex, human-designed environments such as city driving. Developmental learning techniques for such “vehicle-based” robots will be necessary. Motivated by neuroscience, we propose a system with a design based on the criteria of autonomous,(More)
Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing protocol (AODV) is a reactive routing protocol used in MANETs that makes use of Hello Messages for local Link connectivity. Every node in a network broadcasts hello messages to all its neighbours at a default hello interval of 1 second. However, this continuous broadcast leads to unnecessary energy consumption and(More)
Due to their "on demand" nature, the reactive protocols for MANETs, incurred less overhead and hence are preferred over proactive protocols. Since reactive protocols rely on network wide flooding of routing messages, they suffer from the "broadcast storm" problem. Received signal strength based probabilistic flooding scheme named(More)
