Research Area:  Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
Recently, the intelligent transportation system (ITS), which provides vehicles with the capabilities to cooperatively and wireless exchange messages to circumvent, for instance, hazardous motorway traffic circumstances, have attracted an enormous amount of attention in academia and the automotive industry. Moreover, vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) are considered to be at the center of ITS, owing to the recent demands to minimize the number of injuries leading to fatalities, loss of lives and finances, consequent to the increased number of accidents on the highways.
To overcome the weaknesses of the proposed Adaptive FEC scheme, an Adaptive FEC-based Timely and Efficient Multi hop Broadcast (Adaptive FEC-based TEMB) scheme is proposed for Reliable Inter-Vehicular Communication. The Adaptive application of error control and the utilization of dynamic transmission range reduces the hops count between faulty vehicle and other nearby vehicles in a region on the motorway.
The results of the theoretical analysis and simulation experiments show that our proposed schemes mentioned above outperformed the existing related solutions.
