Abstract:The goal of this assignment is to enhance existing VANET multi-hop communication algorithms and protocols by exploiting system level benefits of Tall vehicles, and investigate the performance, in terms of hop count and end-to-end delay. In order to extend the benefits of Tall vehicles into multi-hop communication networks, we plan to design large-scale simulations, which apply the action of selecting Tall vehicles as next hop to multi-hop routing protocols in VANET. This gives insights in how the single-hop benefits observed in [QiWo12] will translate into the system level performance benefits in a multi-hop vehicular environment. Motivated by above, this assignment extends the research work accomplished in [QiWo12], based on a propagation model that can be applied in V2V communications scenarios, when the communication: 1) is using 802.11p Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) standard, 2) consider vehicles as obstructions. With extensive simulation studies, the system level benefits of Tall vehicles are investigated when different road topologies, vehicle densities, percentages of Large vehicles are used. The main research question that has to be answered by this assignment is: • How could existing VANET multi-hop communication algorithms and protocols benefit when applying the action of selecting tall vehicles as next relay hops?
