© 1967-2012 IEEE. Discovering and maintaining efficient routes for data dissemination in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) has proven to be a very challenging problem. Clustering is one of the control protocols used to provide efficient and stable routes for data dissemination. However, the rapid changes in network topology in VANETs creates frequent cluster reformation, which can seriously affect route stability. We propose a novel evolutionary game theoretic (EGT) framework to automate the clustering of nodes and nominations of cluster heads, to achieve cluster stability in VANETs. The equilibrium point is proven analytically and the stability is also tested using Lyapunov function. The performance of the proposed evolutionary game is empirically investigated with different cost functions using static and mobile scenarios. The simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness and robustness of our proposed EGT approach for different populations and speeds, thus reducing the overhead of frequent cluster reformation in VANETs.

© 2018 IEEE. The growth of technical revolution towards 5G Next generation networks is expected to meet various communication requirements of future Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Motivated by the consumer needs for variety of ITS applications, bandwidth, high speed and ubiquity, researches are currently exploring different network architectures and techniques, which could be employed in Next generation ITS. To provide flexible network management, control and high resource utilization in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) on large scale, a new hierarchical 5G Next generation VANET architecture is proposed. The key idea of this holistic architecture is to integrate the centralization and flexibility of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Cloud-RAN (CRAN), with 5G communication technologies, to effectively allocate resources with a global view. Moreover, a fog computing framework (comprising of zones and clusters) has been proposed at the edge, to avoid frequent handovers between vehicles and RSUs. The transmission delay, throughput and control overhead on controller are analyzed and compared with other architectures. Simulation results indicate reduced transmission delay and minimized control overhead on controllers. Moreover, the throughput of proposed system is also improved.
