Most Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks' (VANET) applications use broadcasting as a main block for safety messages' dissemination. The broadcast range is a critical parameter in the success of any VANET's safety application. Moreover broadcasting in its normal way may lead to a broadcast storm problem. In this paper we present a geometric model to predict the recommended maximum range of a one hop broadcast message. We also introduce a new scheme to alleviate the impact of the broadcast storm problem… CONTINUE READING
