Return to Article Details A Study on Service Procedure in Clustered Vehicular CommunicationVehicular ad-hoc network is a new technology to achieve intelligent inter-vehicular communications. Vehicular ad-hoc network is highly dynamic due to the high speed of the vehicles, building and trees in the city areas that causes frequent changes in the network topology. Therefore it requires an efficient routing protocol and service architecture. This paper focuses a new cluster based highway model with 802.11p technology in which the service request and service update procedure for various protocols are studied and their performances have been analyzed and the results are presented in this paper. Here a new service request and service response procedure is introduced in the cluster based highway model that increases the performance of the service reply time and broadcasting time of warning messages.
