Abstract

This paper evaluates a Cooperative ARQ protocol to be used in delay-tolerant vehicular networks. The scenario consists in cars downloading information from Access Points along a road. The key difference between proposed Cooperative ARQ protocols is when the cooperation takes place. Simply C-ARQ cooperation occurs in a packet-by-packet basis. In this proposal, that we call DC-ARQ (Delayed Cooperative ARQ), the cooperation is delayed until cars are out of the coverage area of the Access Point. The scheme has been evaluated through simulations. A comparison of DC-ARQ with a baseline case in which no cooperation is used has been performed under different vehicle densities scenarios.
