Cluster-based Cooperative Multicast for Multimedia Data Dissemination in Vehicular Networks
MetadataShow full item record
With the development of communication technologies, vehicular network applications have evolved from basic traffic safety and efficiency applications to information and entertainment applications. The implementation of emerging vehicular applications is based on the efficient dissemination of multimedia data. In view of the dynamic topology changes, severe channel fading and limited spectrum resources of vehicular networks, how to achieve efficient multimedia data dissemination in the harsh network environment is an urgent problem. Based on the hybrid cellular-D2D vehicular network, this paper proposes a cluster-based cooperative multicast scheme. The scheme combines multicast transmission with D2D-assisted relay technology to provide high-quality data dissemination for vehicle users under limited spectrum resources. In this paper, we innovatively present a communication quality index that considers multiple performance factors and formulate the relay selection problem as the anti p-center problem in graph theory. Then we propose a heuristic method to solve the problem. The results show that the proposed scheme can effectively improve the utilization of wireless resources and the success rate of data dissemination.
