Abstract

© 2014 Elsevier B.V. Many information services envisaged for the future of vehicle communications rely on the wired Internet infrastructure to download content from remote servers, and then on peer-to-peer, opportunistic networking to deliver the content to the pertinent nodes. We present an approach to support individualized access to web contents from vehicular ad hoc networks, based on a virtualization layer that engages the mobile nodes in collaboration to emulate a reliable infrastructure of stationary virtual nodes. We prove by simulation experiments that this approach achieves better performance than reference works in the literature.
