A Mobicast Routing Protocol in Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks
In this paper, we present a spatiotemporal multicast , called a mobicast, protocol for supporting applications which require spatiotemporal coordination in VANETs. The spatiotemporal character of a mobicast is to forward a mobicast message to vehicles located in some geographic zone at time t, where the geographic zone is denoted as zone of relevance (ZOR). Vehicles located in ZOR at the time t must keep the connectivity to maintain the real-time data communication between all vehicles in ZOR. The temporal network fragmentation problem is occurred if the connectivity of ZOR is lost such that vehicles in ZOR cannot successfully receive the mobicast messages. To solve the problem, a new mobicast protocol is presented in this work to successfully disseminate mobicast messages to all vehicles in ZOR via a special geographic zone, called as zone of forwarding (ZOF). The main contribution of this work is to develop a new mobicast routing protocol to dynamically estimate the accurate ZOF to s...
