ABSTRACT Providing quality-of-service- (QoS-) guaranteed video on demand (VOD) services over wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVEs) is a challenge as WAVE adopts enhanced distributive channel access (EDCA), a contention-based channel access mechanism, for air interface access control. This paper proposes a selective downlink scheduling (SDS) algorithm to enhance the quality of VOD for WAVE networks. According to the importance of video decoding, video packets are categorized into high and low priorities. The categorized packets are put into different queues in roadside units (RSUs) to contend for transmission opportunities. Aiming to improve video playback quality and reduce video playback delay, the proposed SDS algorithm schedules video packets based on their importance, playback deadline, and their real-time parameters of receiving onboard units (OBUs), such as velocity and remaining dwelling time. The effectiveness of SDS algorithm is verified by simulations.

    ABSTRACT: With increasing popularity of inter-vehicular communication, the need to provide emergency and infotainment services to vehicles in a fair and efficient manner is top priority. These data items can be downloaded or uploaded from a Hotspot which is Roadside Unit. The only difference between a hotspot and a roadside unit is hotspots are kept far apart as compared to roadside units. When many vehicles try to access a hotspot for some services then fair data scheduling is required. In this paper we propose a priority based NDS scheduling algorithm using broadcast transmissions is proposed along with the comparison study with existing algorithms. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm performs better than other the existing service scheduling algorithms.

    ABSTRACT: IEEE 802.11p/WAVE (Wireless Access for Vehicular Environment) is the emerging standard to enable wireless access in the vehicular environment. Most of the research contributions in this area has focused on safety-related applications, while comfort and information/entertainment applications (such as on board Internet access, point-of-interest notification, e-map download) have been considered only recently. Notwithstanding, the user interest in this kind of applications is expected to become a big market driver in a near future. In this paper, an extension to IEEE 802.11p is proposed that is compliant with the multi-channel operation of the WAVE architecture and targets at the support of non-safety applications, while preserving the delivery of safety services. The proposed W-HCF (WAVE-based Hybrid Coordination Function) protocol leverages controlled access capabilities on top of the basic contention-based access of the IEEE 802.11p; it exploits vehicles’ position information and coordination among WAVE providers in order to improve performances of delay-constrained and loss-sensitive non-safety applications.

    ABSTRACT: Many protocols have been proposed for solving the user authentication in portable communication system. One of the schemes is based on the delegation concept. Home Location Register (HLR) delegates Mobile Station (MS) to be authenticated by Visitor Location Register (VLR). The main drawback of the scheme is that the HLR is required during the online authentication phase between VLR and MS. In this paper, a double delegation-based authentication and key agreement protocol is proposed. The main advantage of our protocol is that this scheme requires only MS and VLR online. This protocol will thoroughly utilize the proxy signature features to facilitate the operation of this protocol while only requires two members (MS, VLR) to be online at the same time.
