A study on the feasibility of mobile gateways for vehicular ad-hoc networks
Development in Wireless LAN and Cellular technologies has motivated recent efforts to integrate the two. This creates new application scenarios that were not possible before. Vehicles with Wireless LAN radios can use other vehicles with both Wireless LAN and Cellular radios as mobile gateways and connect to the outside world. We aim to study the feasibility of such global connectivity from the road through simulation of the underlying connectivity characteristics for varying traffic and gateway densities. The connectivity results suggest that each vehicle should be able to connect to at least one gateway for a majority of time. The average path lifetimes are found to be good enough many traditional Internet applications like FTP and HTTP. The effectiveness of the AODV wireless ad-hoc routing protocol over this scenario is evaluated and shown to perform well for the densities considered. However, the routes created by AODV can break very frequently due to the dynamic nature of mobili...
