Destination-aware context-based routing protocol with hybrid soft computing cluster algorithm for VANET
- 27 Downloads
Due to the rapid topology change, frequent link failure, high vehicle mobility and hard delay constraints, the vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) became a hot research topic in this smart era. VANET has vast application areas including road congestion notification, parking, traffic management, smart transportation, road-side business advertisements. In all these applications, the messages should reach the target location within certain time limits. So, there must be efficient soft computing-enabled routing in VANET which meets these delay constraints. Two soft computing algorithms were proposed in this paper: First, a hybrid clustering algorithm is proposed which combines the geographic- and context-based clustering approaches. The hybrid clustering reduces the control overhead and traffic in the network. Second, the destination-aware routing protocol is proposed for inter-clustering routing which improves the overall packet delivery ratio and reduces the end-to-end delay. The performance of the proposed approach is compared with the well-known cluster-based approaches. The result shows that the proposed approach outperforms the existing approaches.
