Research Area:  Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
The existing ad hoc on demand multipath distance vector (AOMDV) routing scheme for vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) is extended to a reliable low-latency multipath routing (RLLMR) scheme based on multipath link reliability, capable of determining the reliable routes preemptively. Here, the link reliability refers to the probability that a direct transmission link among any two vehicles remains constantly available for a specific period of time, which can be computed based on the position, route, and velocity of the vehicles to facilitate the reliable routing process in VANETs. In the proposed RLLMR scheme, the mathematical distribution of vehicles movements and link breakages is also considered to increase the reliability of the vehicular networks. The simulation results show that proposed RLLMR scheme performs better compared to existing schemes in terms of latency, reliability, throughput, and energy consumption at the cost of marginally increased routing overhead.
