In Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET), vehicles act like mobile nodes for fetching, sharing, and disseminating important information related to vehicle safety, warning messages, emergency events, and passenger infotainment. Due to continuous information sharing of vehicles with their surrounding nodes, Road Side Units (RSUs), and infrastructures, the existing host-centric IP-based network cannot fulfill the requirements of VANETs. Therefore, Information Centric Networking (ICN) architectures are

This paper introduces a new ICN-based proactive left-right-front (LRF) caching strategy for VANETs, which maximizes the performance of VANETs by placing content proactively at the right nodes. The proposed strategy also provides a mechanism for the timely dissemination of safety-related messages. LRF is compared with other caching strategies in the NS-3 simulator, which outperforms those schemes in terms of cache utilization, hop ratios, and resolved interest ratios with respect to 100 MB, 500 MB, and 1 GB cache sizes.
