Due to vehicles high mobility, there have been many clustering-based MAC protocols proposed to control Vehicular Ad hoc Network topology more effectively. Cluster head (CH) selection and cluster formation is of paramount importance in a highly dynamic environment such as VANETs. In this paper, we propose a novel cluster head selection criteria where cluster heads are selected based on their relative speed and distance from vehicles within their neighborhood. The maintenance phase in the… CONTINUE READING
