Vehicular networking is an emerging technology that offers the potential of providing a variety of new services. However, extending vehicular networks to include internet protocol (IP) connections is still problematic, due in part to the incompatibility of mobile IP handovers with the increased mobility of vehicles. The handover process, consisting of discovery, registration, and packet forwarding, has a large overhead and disrupts connectivity. With increased handover frequency and smaller… CONTINUE READING
