Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, mobile ad hoc networks have taken notice of the means for autonomous driving and construction of smart and connected communities. VANETs are an essential technology for autonomous driving. By aggregating and analyzing data obtained from mobile devices, smartphones, and wearable sensors, it is possible to realize crowd behavior such as congestion of public spaces in real time. Such techniques can be used for not only behavior estimation but also behavior modification of humans and objects. They can be used for behavior supports of elderly people, disaster mitigation, construction of smart communities, and so on. This Special Issue aims to collect the latest research results related to “Mobile and Wireless Ad Hoc Networks”.

Application of safety-related information interaction among vehicles has always been a research frontier in Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs). These messages require high real-time performance. There is a lot of research dependant on creating optimization model for communication task scheduling or routing protocols to reduce communication delay. In this paper, we analyze characteristics of safety-related information and introduce Interference Alignment (IA) technology in VANETs. To further improve routing efficiency, a data-driven assisted transmission routing and broadcast model framework for Vehicle to Vehicle(V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communication are constructed which are the basis for IA. Depending on the proposed model, we propose an optimization problem of minimizing total number of time slots required for safety information sharing in VANETs. Then a clustering algorithm is designed to narrow feasible solution space. Simulation results show that the approach can effectively reduce the number of time slots required and improve link use by 20% percent compared with no IA applied. Full article
