Emergency Message Dissemination Algorithms in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
Recently, vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) technology has emerged as an important research area. Similar to
mobile ad hoc network (MANET), VANET is characterized as self-configured wireless network. Being ad-hoc in nature,
however, VANET has the characteristics that it has the dynamic topology, large and variable network size, and limited
mobility. This paper suggests a new emergency message dissemination protocol, which addresses both the broadcast storm and
disconnected network problems in highway VANETs.
