VANET/DTN - Description

Go to Group Publications

This sub-group discusses challenges and research topics related to VANET and DTN.

Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET) have been envisioned to play an important role in the future wireless communication service market for safety communications as well as for information and entertainment applications. Examples of safety-oriented applications for VANET are the notifications of emergency situations, such as car accidents or bad weather conditions. Applications in VANET can be deployed by using vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications (e.g., the downloading of music and video files), or vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, such as in distributed games played among passengers in neighboring vehicles. Our current research topics in VANET include: MAC protocols and cross-layer design, resource management, clustering and routing overhead in VANET, IP mobility and IPv6 deployment in VANET, capacity and mobility connectivity, mobility models for vehicular networks, and data dissemination.

Delay/disruption Tolerant Networks (DTNs) enables communications between occasionally-connected network entities. DTN architecture is characterized by frequent disruptions and long delayed connections due to mobility, sparse deployment of nodes, node failures, and noises, etc. DTNs have a broad range of potential applications including vehicular communications, military battlefields, habitat monitoring, and deep space communications. Our current research topics in DTN include: Energy efficient protocols for DTN and resource management in DTN.
