[1] Vasileios Dragonas, “Medium Access Policies for Vehicular Networks”, On-going Ph.D. Thesis, Ionian University.
Abstract: The present thesis’ main research objective is the possibility of improving current medium access control policies in vehicular networks or design and implementation of new ones. Existing communication protocols that are currently being used in other types of wireless networks fail to address this issue because vehicular networks possess some special characteristics. In particular, nodes in a vehicular network have especially high mobility which causes the network topology to constantly change. Additionally, a vehicular network should be able to support a variety of services which may have different requirements from the underlying medium access policy. Moreover, there is a need for ad-hoc networking because network infrastructure will not be available throughout the road network. The above points contribute to the fact that the design of communication protocols for vehicular networks is a challenging task because it is difficult to satisfy the requirements of all the different services that could potentially need access to rapidly topology-changing network., 2017.
