A Cross Layered MAC and Clustering Scheme for Efficient Broadcast in VANETs

In this paper, we illustrate the design of a cross-layered MAC and clustering solution for supporting the fast propagation of broadcast messages in a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET). A distributed dynamic clustering algorithm is proposed to create a dynamic virtual backbone in the vehicular network. The vehicle-members of the backbone are responsible for… CONTINUE READING
