Analysis of Path Duration in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks using B MFR ProtocolDownload PDF
The larger and rapid changes that know all the domains in the world not excluded the transport sector. Today, the fleet is growing, the roads are becoming more dangerous by the effect of congestion and increase of collision. The intelligent transportation systems (ITS) is in effort to integrate information technology in transportation. Vehicular Ad hoc network (VANET) having vehicles as moving nodes is a subclass of MANET. It is a real time network with no central network control. For successful communication, the data from the sender should reach the destination in a timely manner. It is challenging to find and maintain optimal path between source and destination nodes, since the nodes are mobile. Path duration is an important parameter that determines the performance of a mobile ad hoc network. In this paper, we have proposed a mathematical model to estimate the path duration between source and destination node using B MFR protocol. The mathematical model is simulated and the B MFR protocol is implemented using MATLAB. The result reveals that the path duration increases as the transmission range increases and decreases as the number of hops increases in VANET.
