We investigate the potential of applying cooperative relaying and network coding techniques to support vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication in vehicular cloud networks (VCN). A reuse-mode MIMO content distribution system with multiple sources, multiple relays, and multiple destinations under Nakagami-m fading is considered. We apply a class of finite field network codes in the relays to achieve high spatial diversity in an efficient manner and derive the system communication error probability that the destinations fail to recover the desired source messages. The results show that our method can improve the performance over conventional data transmission solutions.
