Facilitating Real-time Applications in VANETs through Fast Address Auto-configuration


Real-time applications are going to play a major role in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs). In this context, nodes’ IP addresses need to be automatically configured in a very small time and with a reduced need for re-configurations. Due to the very high mobility of vehicles, however, traditional mechanisms for address auto-configuration fail to perform well. Aimed at solving this problem, we propose a novel Leader-based scheme that exploits the topology of VANETs and a distributed DHCP service to guarantee fast and stable address configuration.
