Abstract
Various wireless communication systems exist, which enable a wide range of applications and use cases in the vehicular environment. These applications can be grouped into three types, namely, road safety, traffic efficiency, and infotainment, each with its own set of functional and performance requirements. In pursuance of assisting drivers to travel safely and comfortably, several of these requirements have to be met simultaneously. While the coexistence of multiple radio access technologies brings immense opportunities towards meeting most of the vehicular networking application requirements, it is equally important and challenging to identify the strength and weaknesses of each technology and understand which technology is more suitable for the given networking scenario. In this paper, we evaluate two of the most viable communication standards, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11p and long-term evolution (LTE) by 3rd Generation Partnership Project for vehicular networking. A detailed performance evaluation study of the standards is given for a variety of parameter settings such as beacon transmission frequency, vehicle density, and vehicle average speed. Both standards are compared in terms of delay, reliability, scalability, and mobility support in the context of various application requirements. Furthermore, through extensive simulation-based study, we validated the effectiveness of both standards to handle different application requirements and share insight for further research directions. The results indicate that IEEE 802.11p offers acceptable performance for sparse network topologies with limited mobility support. On the other hand, LTE meets most of the application requirements in terms of reliability, scalability, and mobility support; however, it is challenging to obtain stringent delay requirements in the presence of higher cellular network traffic load.

Designing and distributing effective vehicular safety applications can help significantly reduce the number of car accidents and assure the safety of many precious lives. However, despite the efforts from standardization bodies and industrial manufacturers, many studies suggest that it will take more than a decade for full deployment. We start this work with the hypothesis that smartphones may be suitable platforms for catalyzing the distribution of vehicular safety systems. Specifically, smartp...

Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) for improving vehicular safety are increasingly network based, with approaches that use vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication. Most current proposals for V2V and V2I use DSRC and a dedicated infrastructure of road side units (RSUs) for the V2I scenarios. Here, the technical feasibility of an alternative architecture is explored, one that uses a combination of LTE cellular networks and servers near the edge of the LTE...

A vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) is a wireless network that provides communications between nearby vehicles. Among the different types of information that can be made available to vehicles through VANETs, road traffic information is the most important one. This work is part of an experimental development of a wireless communication platform oriented to applications that allow improving road efficiency and safety, managing and monitoring road traffic, encouraging cooperative driving, and offeri...

Testing Vehicular Network protocols can be quite problematic. In fact, vehicular experiments are often expensive in both economic and temporal terms. As a consequence, researchers generally resort to software simulations which are a neccessary first step but still not sufficient. In this paper, we present two possible experimentation frameworks that could give a boost to the testing of protocols for vehicular networks: the first framework is based on Android smartphones, while the second is base...

In this paper, we consider a sensory data gathering application of a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) in which vehicles produce sensory data, which should be gathered for data analysis and making decisions. Data delivery is particularly challenging because of the unique characteristics of VANETs, such as fast topology change, frequent disruptions, and rare contact opportunities. Through empirical study based on real vehicular traces, we find an important observation that a noticeable percentage ...

In this work, we present an innovative approach for effective cross-network information dissemination, with applications to vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). The proposed approach, denoted as "Cross-Network Effective Traffic Alert Dissemination" (X-NETAD), leverages on the spontaneous formation of local WiFi (IEEE 802.11b) VANETs, with direct connections between neighboring vehicles, in order to disseminate, very quickly and inexpensively, traffic alerts received from the cellular network. The...

Driving security and comfort can be improved by applying Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) proposals. The low adoption rate of new ITS hardware and software products is slowing down the market introduction of these solutions. In this paper we present a driving safety application for smartphones based on a warning dissemination protocol called eMDR. The use of smartphones minimizes the hardware cost and eliminates most of the adoption barriers; users will no longer have to install new dedi...

In this paper we propose and evaluate a heterogeneous architecture for location service in vehicular environments. The proposed Location Service utilizes the infrastructure of cellular networks to offload the Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) systems from the signalling overhead required for the location service. We evaluate the performance of such a hybrid solution in terms of overhead and end-to-end delay. The results suggest that a heterogeneous network with an IEEE 802.11p access ne...

Vehicular networks, an enabling technology for Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), smart cities, and autonomous driving, can deliver numerous on-board data services, e.g., road-safety, easy navigation, traffic efficiency, comfort driving, infotainment, etc. Providing satisfactory quality of service (QoS) in vehicular networks, however, is a challenging task due to a number of limiting factors such as hostile wireless channels (e.g., high mobility or asynchronous transmissions), increasingly...

Cognitive radio benefits vehicular users to access massive and broadband services in a radio environment of limited spectrum. Reducing energy consumption is critical for energy-limited users and is also helpful to reduce greenhouse gas emission. This paper first proposes an energy-efficient transmission scheme in cognitive radio/WiFi vehicular networks, in which traffic is optimally distributed to cognitive radio and WiFi interfaces such that traffic is transmitted in an energy-efficient and tim...

This paper proposes a novel approach for time constrained information gathering in a typical Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET), based on a token passing scheme, adapted to wireless communications by creating a virtual ring where nodes are connected to a predecessor and a successor node. To address the typical fast topology changes of VANETs, we proposed a specific approach, called Tom Thumb that is a distributed protocol that node-by-node circulates a special packet, called token, which collects ...

A C-ITS is a system where mobile stations OBU (On-Board Units) exchange messages with other ITSS-V or RSU (Road Side Units). Messages are sent through a specific WIFI (IEEE 802.11p) denoted also ETSI ITS-G5. The efficiency of this technology has been proven in terms of latency. However, RSU are common everywhere, for this reason we look for another mean to guarantee this communication. Cellular networks are widely deployed and ma support these communications.

Abstract There is nowadays a growing demand in vehicular communications for real-time applications requiring video assistance. The new state-of-the-art high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) standard is very promising for real-time video streaming. It offers high coding efficiency, as well as dedicated low delay coding structures. Among these, the all intra (AI) coding structure guarantees minimal coding time at the expense of higher video bitrates, which therefore penalizes transmission performanc...

Spectrum regulators and stakeholders from the wireless industry and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) communities are exploring the use of the 5.9 GHz band for the dissemination of basic safety messages. Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) sends out these messages at a constant rate of 10 Hz and packet collisions occur in dense vehicular environments. In this paper, we propose a priority-based dynamic beaconing scheme. The scheme determines a higher beacon transmission rate for veh...
