Performance Analysis of Blockchain-Based Internet of Vehicles Under the DSRC Architecture

Part of the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering book series (LNICST,volume 352)

Abstract

Blockchain technology has shown great potential in the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) in solving the problems of data sharing and information traceability. Understanding the relationship between the IoV communication architecture and the blockchain can facilitate designing dedicated blockchain enabled IoV systems. In this paper, a two-layer wireless blockchain network architecture based on Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) is proposed. Then the M/G/1 queuing model is used to analyze the delivery process of the transaction under the unsaturated condition, and the Markov model is established to analyze the unicast service process. Finally, the verification process of the block in the Tangle consensus network is deduced. The simulation results show that the network load, channel conditions, queuing and backoff service processes in the wireless environment have a significant impact on the delay and throughput of the blockchain network, which further proves that the wireless environment is the main reason for limiting the performance of the Tangle blockchain network.
