    ABSTRACT: Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) belong to a class of complex networks due to constant addition and deletion of nodes. Stimulating cooperation in these networks is a research challenge due to this uncertainty. The reason is that the node behavior is highly influenced by the neighborhood structure. Game theory has been significantly used to model ad hoc networks and optimize cooperation. However, in vehicular interactions, apart from the individual node behavior, networking properties play a vital role in the evolution of cooperation. This paper presents a public goods game (PGG) group interaction model for vehicular networks. We analyze how networking properties can impact the diffusion of cooperation. Simulation results show that higher network connectivity induces higher clustering in the network. This influences the probability of nodes receiving common packets from the neighborhood. The average path length proportional to clustering impacts the benefit sharing in the neighborhood. Results show that cooperation diffusion in these networks cannot be forced but evolves with different networking conditions.

    ABSTRACT: Data aggregation has been recognized as an effective technique for reducing communication costs while obtaining useful aggregated information. In this paper, we study the crucial problem of delay-constrained data aggregation in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), which has not been well studied in the literature. With the analysis based on real traces, we observe that there is heterogeneity with node contact patterns, which indicates that some nodes contact other nodes more frequently. Motivated by this observation, we propose an approach called aTree. The centralized aTree first constructs a data aggregation tree based on the shortest path tree and then assigns a waiting time budget to each node on the tree based on dynamic programming. We further develop a distributed aTree, in which a shortest path tree is built in a distributed fashion, and nodes determine their waiting time budgets collaboratively. We have performed extensive simulations on real taxi traces, and results show that our aTree schemes incur much lower transmission overhead while achieving the same performance compared with other schemes.
