Connectivity in vehicular ad hoc networks may degrade dramatically in sparse traffic and also high speed highways. In this paper we study a way to improve the connectivity by adding some extra nodes with higher transmission range which we call mobile base-stations. These nodes can also offer commercial services (e.g. advertisement, video, audio, etc.) to the vehicles on roads. Besides, the financial profit of those services also depends on a satisfactory connectivity. We use an equivalent M=G=1… CONTINUE READING
