Noor AbdulKhaleq Zghair, Abdul Razzaq Taresh, Ghaida Muttashar Abdulsahib
2019 Journal of Southwest Jiaotong University  
Enhancing and finding a modified protocol of routing for this type of networks is a clear difficulty because these are self-managed, distributed, and large networks.  ...  As an illustrative case, it exhibited that, by including new segments that make use of this information, the overhead of the traditional urban highway can be diminished liberally with no imperative execution  ...  It gives that the (M) part goes about as a message silencer: the (P) framework enables a couple of messages to be re-communicated by vehicles which have a comparable message in a short time period beforehand  ...

An Efficient Content Delivery Infrastructure Leveraging the Public Transportation Network

Qiankun Su, Katia Jaffres-Runser, Gentian Jakllari, Charly Poulliat
2016 Proceedings of the 19th ACM International Conference on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems - MSWiM '16  
This paper presents a content delivery infrastructure relying on off-the-shelf technology and the public transportation network (PTN) aimed at relieving the wireless bandwidth crunch in urban centers.  ...  Our solution proposes installing WiFi access points on selected public bus stations and buses and using the latter as data mules, creating a delay tolerant network capable of carrying content users can  ...  Relay nodes, such as the station S3, linearly combine sets of messages into a new network coded message (i.e. encode).  ...
