A Systematic Literature Review on Efficient and Reliable Broadcast in Vehicular Networks


This paper propose a broadcast transmission is an effective way to disseminate safety-related information for co-operative driving in vehicle communication. However, it is fraught with fundamental challenges such as message redundancy ,link unreliability ,hidden terminals and broadcast storms, which greatly degrade network performance(1). Broadcast transmission is a frequently used approach to advertise information in VANETs. Nevertheless, effectively broadcasting emergency message to other vehicles in inter vehicle communication is extremely challenging, particularly due to high mobility and a hostile wireless environment. First, as no acknowledgment (ACK) mechanism is applied for broadcast messages in the medium-accesscontrol(MAC)layer, message loss due to packet collisions or poor channel conditions cannot be easily detected. Since life –critical emergency messages have to be delivered. To other vehicles as fast and reliable as possible(2), the traditional broadcasting scheme without an (ACK) mechanism is not suitable for emergency message delivery in IVC. Second, due to the limited transmission range, message relaying from intermediate nodes is required to reach remote vehicles. How-ever without an effective broadcast control mechanism, multi-nodes which could result in a broadcast storm problem(3) and degrade the network resource utilization. Therefore the objective of the research is to survey broadcast in vehicular networks. We analysis the different protocols and simulation using NS-2.
