SINR and Reliability based Hidden Terminal Estimation for Next Generation Vehicular Networks
Proceedings of the 12th ACM Symposium on QoS and Security for Wireless and Mobile Networks - Q2SWinet '16
Safety applications are currently being developed in next generation vehicular networks to provide road safety. Broadcasting of safety messages unveils the need of reliability assessment since there are no request-to-send (RTS)/clear-tosend (CTS) handshaking and acknowledgment packets in broadcast vehicular communications. Therefore, the reliability of broadcast messages suffer from hidden terminal problem, interference and high mobility. To overcome these challenges,
... to-Interference-and-Noise Ratio (SINR) estimation is a key solution so that we can foresee the transmission collisions caused by hidden terminals and prevent its transmissions. Then, we can build a model to improve reliability of broadcast messages. Towards this aim, in this paper, we propose a SINR based hidden terminal estimation model. First, we introduce a method to specify hidden terminals and their transmissions, then we estimate accurate SINR level at the receiver in the near future. Second, we formulate the successfully received packets with a heuristic algorithm and, calculate throughput and hidden terminal radius. Our approach enables significant improvement in the reliability of broadcast vehicular communications.
