Daily roadway commutes provide driving patterns in time and in space motivating the formation of mobile vehicular groups based on common backgrounds and interests. These groups can be used to reduce the propagation of irrelevant and redundant information and can be used also for group-based applications such as caravaning. This paper investigates the groups formation behavior under the dynamic topology of vehicular networks through different traces and synthetic scenarios. Next, to show the impact of group on content dissemination scheduling, a comparison of group-based scheduling with other relevant data dissemination scheduling schemes is conducted by simulations in terms of delivery ratio and latency. Simulation results show that groups can be used in order to share information in an intelligent way such that to reduce the propagation of irrelevant and redundant information. Additionally, this paper shows that group-based data dissemination can enhance the delivery ratio and latency compared to other relevant scheduling schemes.
