InVANETs for First Responders

By Syed R. Rizvi, Michele C. Weigle and Mona E. Rizvi


This paper provides a work in progress, inspired by a recently proposed novel chaos-reducing information dissemination approach for spatio-temporal traffic information related to first responders and evacuation scenarios using Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). Intelligent Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (InVANETs) use WiFi IEEE 802.11 and WiMAX IEEE 802.16 for easy and effective Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communication. This paper discusses a comprehensive approach in VANETs, to bring about high End to End (E2E) network connectivity, so that not only are safety and comfort objectives met, but also minimum network contention and interference are achieved. Some challenges that this approach will face are also discussed. We use a realistic mobility and traffic model in our simulation. Simulation results show that our approach improves the results of the recently proposed protocol
