Vehicular safety applications require reliable and up-to-date knowledge of the local neighborhood. Under IEEE 802.11p, this is attained through single-hop broadcasts of safety beacons in the control channel. However, high transmission power and node mobility can cause regions of node density to form rapidly. In such situations, excessive load on the control channel must be avoided to prevent performance degradation for safety applications. Existing congestion control schemes aim to reach a fair… CONTINUE READING
