Title

Content Distribution in VANETs

Abstract

Advances in vehicular communications technology are making content distribution to vehicles more effective and increasingly more popular. This paper presents state of the art technologies and protocols for content distribution in VANETs. Major challenges are Internet access spectrum scarcity, mobility, connectivity intermittence and scalability. Aspects covered in this paper include: coexistence of WiFi and LTE; application of network coding; protection from pollution attacks; incentive design for cooperation enforcement; QoS support for video streaming applications. Simulation and testbed results are presented to support the findings. Critical issues that will determine future directions in this area are identified and discussed.
