ABSTRACT In this paper, we propose an algorithm for joint adaptation of transmission power and contention window to improve the performance of vehicular network in a cross layer approach. The high mobility of vehicles in vehicular communication results in the change in topology of the Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) dynamically, and the communication link between two vehicles might remain active only for short duration of time. In order for VANET to make a connection for long time and to mitigate adverse effects due to high and fixed transmission power, the proposed algorithm adapts transmission power dynamically based on estimated local traffic density. In addition to that, the prioritization of messages according to their urgency is performed for timely propagation of high priority messages to the destination region. In this paper, we incorporate the contention based MAC protocol 802.11e enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) mechanism to implement a priority-based vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm is successful in getting better throughput with lower average end-to-end delay than the algorithm with static/default parameters.

    ABSTRACT: Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANET) are a new emergent technology based on wireless ad hoc networks. They are characterized by their high speed nodes, which affect on network topology. This can affect network services, especially those having big packet size and need high bandwidth, such as Multimedia services. Many solutions have been proposed in the literature in order to serve a better multimedia communication over VANET. In this paper, we will focus on cross-layer solutions because of their high performance in term of Quality of Service (QoS). We present a survey of existing cross-layer solutions, which try to enhance multimedia services over VANETs. Works will be classified depending on the nature of information exchanged and their belonging to OSI Layers.

    ABSTRACT: To increase traffic safety, automotive companies and governments have developed various kinds of technologies to support the needs of reducing traffic accidents during the past decades. To achieve this goal, vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) technologies have been getting the spotlight recently and extensive researches using VANET technologies have been carried out. Among them, decentralized congestion control (DCC) of periodic beacon broadcast to support cooperative collision warning (CCW) applications is one of the most critical and challenging issues in VANETs. In order to realize DCC, however, the accurate vehicle density estimation should be preceded because vehicles adjust their congestion control parameters according to the estimated vehicle density. In this paper, we present the existing vehicle density estimation techniques in vehicular communications and point out their limitations and technical challenges for DCC in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) safety communications. The question about how to solve these problems is also discussed in this paper.
