Traffic Aware Video Dissemination Over Vehicular Ad hoc Networks


Video dissemination to a group of vehicles is one of the many fundamental services envisioned for Vehicular Ad hoc Networks. For this purpose, in this paper we describe VoV, a video dissemination protocol that operates under extreme traffic conditions. Contrary to most existing approaches that focus exclusively on always-connected networks and tackle the broadcast storm problem inherent to them, VoV is designed to operate under any kind of traffic condition. We propose a new geographic-based broadcast suppression mechanism that gives higher priority to broadcast to vehicles inside especial forwarding zones. Furthermore, vehicles store and carry received messages in a local buffer in order to forward them to vehicles that were not covered by the first dissemination process, probably as a result of collisions or intermittent disconnections. Finally, VoV employs a rate control mechanism that sets the pace at which messages must be transmitted in an attempt to avoid channel overloading and to overcome the synchronization effects introduced by the channel hopping mechanism employed by IEEE 802.11p. When compared to two well-known solutions -- UV-CAST and AID -- we show that our proposal is more efficient in terms of message delivery, delay and overhead.
