Poster: Studying Vehicle Movements on Highways and their Impact on Ad-Hoc Connectivity

Füßler, H.; Torrent Moreno, M.; Transier, M.; Krüger, R.; Hartenstein, H.; Effelsberg, W.

The mobility of the nodes in a Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a crucial factor in the performance studies of communication protocols for these kind of networks. For this reason, researchers usually use a randomized node movement model, such as the Random Way-Point Model [6], in the process of designing or analyzing the behavior of their protocols. Since movement is not very predictable in these scenarios, they serve as a worst case assumption of node mobility concerning communication protocol performance in the sense that a positive correlation between performance in an RWP scenario and an arbitrary scenario exists. Additionally, RWP is an analytically well-understood mobility scheme and the movements can be generated very easily with tools complementary to most of the common network simulators. Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANETs) are one type of MANETs that is recently attracting the attention of both industry and academia. VANETs are characterized by theusuallystreetbound scenarios due to the special kind of their nodes, i.e., vehicles. Recent research [3] though, shows that protocol performance in VANETs is quite different from ... mehr
