The WLAN APs are being analyzed for use in vehicular communications due to their heavy presence alongside roads. However, these APs are deployed in an unplanned manner thus cannot support continuous connectivity. As a consequence of this random deployment, the vehicles face periods of connectivity and disconnectivity as they try to access the roadside WLAN infrastructure on the move. This intermittency in 802.11-based vehicular communications is termed as “disruption”. Disruption is the major obstacle in the wide spread use of 802.11-based R2V communications. While disruption cannot be completely eradicated without extra deployment of APs, various attempts have been made to reduce or tolerate it. Some of the common approaches adopted to tolerate disruption are:
