Cooperative driving is a promising approach to increase traffic efficiency and safety. However, cooperative driving requires high communication performance from the application perspective when coordinating and executing a cooperative maneuver, especially in scenarios with high vehicle densities under congested channel conditions. Recent studies identified that content-agnostic congestion control mechanisms deployed in decentralized vehicular networks, e. g., from the European

In this paper, we propose a collaborative resource allocation mechanism with content-aware congestion control for decentralized vehicular networks that prioritizes vehicles with relevant information under congested channel conditions. Our evaluation results show that our proposed approach maintains the radio communication performance and significantly increases the communication performance from the application perspective compared to content-agnostic congestion control mechanisms.
