A Cluster Management System for VANETs

Vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) are a key solution for communication in intelligent transportation systems (ITS). However, high mobility of vehicles on roads may cause varying delays and message losses which can limit the use of VANETs in some ITS scenarios. This paper proposes and evaluates a cluster management system for VANETs (CMS) that makes communication in VANETs more robust and efficient, enabling the collection of data of individual vehicles that travel on roads at any time. Simulated experiments show that the proposed system achieves improved communication in VANETs enabling their use in ITS applications such as the real-time road traffic management and control.
