An Efficient, Eco-Friendly Approach for Push-Advertising of Services in VANETs
Thanks to the research on VANETs, we will be able to deploy applications on highways that will contribute to the energy efficiency through a better planning of long trips. With this goal in mind, we have designed a gas/charging station advertising system, that takes advantage of the broadcast nature of the network. We have found that reducing the number of total sent packets is important, as it allows a better use of the available bandwidth. We have optimized a distance-based flooding scheme so that it can support the advertising application with good results in a highway scenario.
