In a VANET (Vehicular Ad Hoc Network), the collisions caused by vehicles' mobility lead to poor network performance, especially in high-density network. In order to increase the flexibility of communication, this paper presents a communication protocol with dynamic choosing relay node and automatic cooperative communication called VC-TDMA (Vehicular Cooperative TDMA). The nodes can choose the multi-hop relay nodes rationally and other idle nodes can provide cooperative communication… CONTINUE READING
