Fair Self-Adaptive Clustering for Hybrid Cellular-Vehicular Networks

Abstract : Due to the increasing number of car-centered connected services, making efficient use of limited radio resources is critical in vehicular communications. Hybrid vehicular networks dispose of multiple Radio Access Technologies (RATs) like cellular and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) networks, with complementary characteristics that allow for developing smarter network traffic distribution methods. This paper proposes a self-adaptive clustering system for ensuring a suitable trade-off between data aggregation (over the cellular network) and communication congestion due to cluster management (within the V2V network). The systems algorithms use a distributive justice approach for selecting cluster heads, to improve fairness among car drivers and hence help the social acceptability of self-adaptive clustering. Simulation results show that this approach significantly improves fairness over time without affecting network performance. This solution can thus optimize the usage of radio resources, reducing cellular access costs, without the need for uniformization among different mobile operators access plans.
