Performance evaluation of broadcast techniques in VANETs


Broadcast is mainly used in VANETs for communication intended to reduce collision, contention, redundant messages and hidden node problem. It also improves the message reliability. But there is no comprehensive analysis and performance evaluation of broadcast exists. In this paper we briefly discuss the existing broadcast techniques their pros and cons in sparse and dense network. Thereafter we also measure the performance of broadcast schemes with help of NS-2 simulator in VANETs scenario.

Keywords: VANETs, flooding, AODV, MDDV DSR, UMB, network congestion.
