The connectivity probability analysis of vehicular networks can be employed for providing theoretical guidance for both obtaining an accurate real-time traffic information and reducing hazardous traffic situations. Most previous studies focused on analyzing the connectivity probability of vehicular networks in physical (PHY) layer protocol. However, the effects of packet collision in media access control (MAC) layer on the connectivity probability of vehicular networks have been rarely studied, where MAC and PHY layers actually interact on each other. In this paper, some parameters are dynamically set and analyzed under consideration of the influence of MAC and PHY layers on the connectivity probability of vehicular networks. Numerical results are shown to be consistent with the proposed theoretical analysis.
