The effectiveness of a VANET largely depends on the density and location of these RSUs. During the initial stages of VANET, it will not be possible to deploy a large number of RSUs either due to the low market penetration of VANET-enabled vehicles or due to the deployment cost of RSUs. There is, therefore, a need to optimally place a limited number of RSUs in a given… CONTINUE READING
