The dedicated short range communications (DSRC) standard equipped with seven channels is designated for intelligent transportation system (ITS) applications to improve the driving safety and support networking services among moving vehicles. Making best use of the DSRC multichannel architecture, we propose a cluster-based multichannel communications scheme, which integrates the clustering with contention-free/contention-based MAC protocols. In our proposed scheme, the elected cluster-head (CH… CONTINUE READING
