Suggested Topics

You may select one of these topics or choose your own. In either case, you should come talk with me as soon as you've chosen a topic (before you submit your project proposal) as I may know of some papers to look at.

For these suggested topics, you should investigate network performance to determine trade-offs and where problems exist. Given those results, you should develop a technique that may improve performance and perform an evaluation study of the new approach.

  1. Investigate the network performance of beaconing/neighbor discovery in a congested environment assuming that beaconing will use the CCH and other applications may use the SCHs. What are optimal/effective durations for CCH and SCH given safety application requirements and changes in traffic density? What do the results say the feasibility of VANETs for safety beaconing?
  2. Investigate the network performance of beaconing/neighbor discovery in a congested environment using a realistic signal fading model such as Nakagami. How do changes in traffic density, transmission range, and message frequency affect network performance? What do the results say the feasibility of VANETs for safety beaconing?
  3. Investigate the network performance when priority access is used. Expand on the Eichler and Torrent-Moreno papers we discussed on Sep 9.
  4. Implement and investigate the D-FPAV algorithm (torrent-moreno-tovt09) for reducing the impact of hidden terminals for one-hop broadcast.
  5. Implement and evaluate the Peercast algorithm (jiang-wcm06) for congestion control on the CCH.
