Abstract

In this paper, we propose a fuzzy-based system to assess Quality of Service (QoS) of communication links set up among adjacent vehicles in Software Defined Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (SDN-VANETs). Our proposed system, called Fuzzy System for Assessment of Quality of Service (FSAQoS), determines if a communication link is reliable and satisfies certain needs in terms of data exchange. FSAQoS is implemented in vehicles equipped with SDN modules and in SDN controllers. When a vehicle needs additional resources, it will request to use available resources of neighboring vehicles. However, for a successful data exchange, the communication link between a pair of vehicles should be reliable and provide a low latency for data exchange. In addition, the fuzzy system takes into consideration the beacon messages distributed in the network, which inform vehicles for their neighbor’s condition and their location. The output of FSAQoS decides the QoS of a certain data link. We evaluate FSAQoS by computer simulations. QoS is decided as high when data exchange is reliable and it is provided in low latency, while beacon messages are transmitted in moderate frequency throughout the network.
