Comprehensive Study of Estimation of Path Duration in Vehicular Ad Hoc Network

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 177)


In this paper, we study the significance of path duration and link duration in Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs). In VANETs, the high mobility of nodes (vehicles) is the main issue of concern. Because of this mobility and connectivity graphs changes very frequently and it affects the performance of VANETs. Therefore, path duration can be used to predict the behavior of the mobile nodes in the network. Estimation of the path duration in VANETs can be a key factor to improve the performance of the routing protocol. Estimation of path duration is a challenging task to perform as it depends on many parameters including node density, transmission range, numbers of hops, and velocity of nodes. This paper will provide a comprehensive study for estimating the path duration in VANETs.
