KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT USING CLUSTERS IN VANETS - Description, Simulation and Analysis

Abstract

Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is a type of mobile network that allows Knowledge Management of the road providing communication among nearby vehicles and between vehicles and nearby fixed roadside equipment. The lack of centralized infrastructure and high node mobility and number of vehicles generate problems such as interrupting connections, difficult routing, security of communications and scalability. Clusters are here proposed as a solution to avoid data collisions by decreasing the number of connections exchanged among vehicles and to reach this goal, nodes must cooperate, and form or join clusters depending on their state. This paper provides a global vision of the life cycle of cooperative nodes who form clusters and a description of how to deal with the information within a cluster. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme reduces the number of communications, avoiding data loss due to collisions. This paper provides a full description of each cluster management process and of how to deal with the information within a cluster.
