Inter-vehicular communications are considered to be an efficient proactive approach for reducing the number and the consequences of road accidents. After a series of remarkable standardisation efforts, one of the last points needing to be addressed in order for safety vehicular networks to become a reality is the scalability problem of the CSMA-based medium access control layer. With node densities that can range from very sparse to several hundred contending stations, the MAC protocol needs… CONTINUE READING
