In a disaster situation, the communication failures due to base station issues or increased transactions and will cause huge delay times and network outages. In such a poor environment, Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN) with a recovery function is attracting attention. In this paper, we propose a hybrid recovery method considering dynamic timer and anti-packet for vehicular DTN. We use an urban grid road model in disaster situations. From the simulation results, we found that hybrid method can improve the storage utilization compared with conventional dynamic timer.
