Non-Intrusive Planning the Roadside Infrastructure for Vehicular Networks

In this article, the authors describe a strategy for planning the roadside infrastructure for vehicular networks based on the global behavior of drivers. Instead of relying on the trajectories of all vehicles, our proposal relies on the migration ratios of vehicles between urban regions in order to infer the better locations for deploying the roadside units. By relying on the global behavior of drivers, our strategy does not incur in privacy concerns. Given a set of available roadside units, our goal is to select those better locations for placing the roadside units in order to maximize the number of distinct vehicles experiencing at least one V2I contact opportunity. Our results demonstrate that full knowledge of the vehicle trajectories are not mandatory for achieving a close-to-optimal deployment performance when the authors intend to maximize the number of distinct vehicles experiencing (at least one) V2I contact opportunities.
