Evaluation of Adaptive Channel Access Mechanisms in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks
Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETS) are one of the most topical subjects in current transport system research. Especially for safety applications, it is of paramount importance to make perfect use of the given wireless channel capacities. Therefor mechanisms, that provide an optimal channel behavior towards the criteria of those applications are highly appreciated.
In this bachelor thesis, we will have a look at the principles of VANETs, that lead to the necessity of introducing new congestion control algorithms. After that, two of such mechanisms, namely Limeric and Dynb, shall be examined theoretically and simulative. The simulative evaluation will be realized by expanding the Veins-Framework for vehicular network simulation by those. Scenarios and metrics have to be determined to classify their efficiency. On the other hand, weaknesses should be exposed and possible improvements to fix the failure can be introduced.
