Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET)

Vehicular adhoc Networks (VANET)

Vehicular ad hoc networks have been receiving extraordinary attention; the attention they are receiving is due to their potential impact on scientific research. It is also because of its enormous breathtaking applications. If the intention is to acquire intelligent communication for vehicular networks then VANETs are extremely significant.

It is a fact that VANETs can prominently enhance the safety and efficiency issues of road traffic. This can be done without incurring huge investment in fixed infrastructure or centralized administration. Information scattering or dissemination is the basis of communication. This information dissemination plays a significant role in VANETs. It has also become an active area of research in the recent past. But information distribution is a tough and intriguing task in the VANET milieu. And the reason can be attributed to frequent changes in the topology of the network and in rapid fragmentation. If any student does a study on Vehicular ad hoc networks, then the intention should be a comprehensive survey on information distribution. And the focus should be some of the significant issues such as scalability, adaptability, privacy and security and many more. The existing information distribution solutions can be classified into eight new classes on the basis of their design and optimization objectives. Thus, we can offer a qualitative overview for each class on the basis of their features and advantages, forwarding strategy, and objectives. The aim of research behind the VANETs is to enhance and escalate the efficiency of information distribution and scattering protocols as much as possible.
