DAYcast: A Dynamic Transmission Delay Based Broadcast Protocol for Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

Abstract : Abstract--Broadcasting is an effective routing paradigm for data dissemination in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). One concern that arises with broadcasting is the broadcast storm problem, which would cause node contentions and data collisions, and thus degrade the transmission efficiency of a network. This paper proposes a Dynamic trAnsmission delaY based broadcast (DAYcast) protocol for a VANET. To alleviate the effect of the broadcast storm and improve the transmission efficiency of the network, DAYcast only allows the effective neighbors of a source vehicle to broadcast a received data packet and the selection of the effective neighbors are based on the position information on the one-hop neighbors of the source vehicle. Meanwhile, it allows each effective neighbor to wait a certain transmission delay before it broadcasts a received packet. The transmission delay of an effective neighbor depends on the distance between the neighbor and the source vehicle, and the number of effective neighbors of the source vehicle. Simulation results show that DAYcast can effectively improve the network performance in terms of network reachability and the successful delivery ratio as compared with existing weighted p-persistence broadcasting (WPB) and slotted 1-persistence broadcasting (SPB).
