Local Density Estimation and Dynamic Transmission-Range Assignment in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

  title={Local Density Estimation and Dynamic Transmission-Range Assignment in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks},
  author={Maen Artimy},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems},
Vehicular ad hoc networks have several characteristics that distinguish them from other ad hoc networks. Among those is the rapid change in topology due to traffic jams, which also disturbs the homogeneous distribution of vehicles on the road. For this reason, a dynamic transmission range is more effective in maintaining the connectivity while minimizing the adverse effects of a high transmission power. This paper proposes a scheme that allows vehicles to estimate the local density and… CONTINUE READING
