SCB: Store-Carry-Broadcast Scheme for Message Dissemination in Sparse VANET

To take on challenges of communication in sparse VANET, we propose a Store-Carry-Broadcast (SCB) scheme to assist message dissemination by broadcasting over a specific road segment instead of a single vehicle. In the SCB scheme, an opposite vehicle helps to disseminate the safety messages to oncoming vehicles traveling on the reverse lane by broadcasting.

Compare with the well-known store-carry-forward broadcasting in VANET, the SCB scheme consumes much less networkbandwidth in terms of the number of broadcasting performed. Extensive simulation results are presented to demonstrate that when the traffic density is low or when the DSCR penetration rate is low, our proposed SCB scheme significantly reduced both broadcast overhead as well as delivery delay in sparse VANET.
