Generally, Named Data Networking (NDN) uses data-name instead of IP addresses for packet forwarding. So, it is simple for applications to use data names for identifying, acquiring, and distributing data in the network. As a result, it makes the communication process work independently without IP issues. 

This page is organized to provide you details on VANET via Named Data Networking ranges from Overview to Research Topics!!!

To minimize unnecessary data sharing and packet loss, Vehicular ad hoc networks via NDN are introduced. It utilizes the NDN theories to explore the communication of V2V, V2R, and R2I with V2I. Consequently, it helps to enhance the network of vehicles in a broad range. 

  • Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) 
  • Vehicle-to-Road Side Unit (V2R) 
  • Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) 
  • Road Side Unit-to-Infrastructure (R2I)

Overview of VANET and NDN (V-NDN) 

The VANET owns different features such as physical data distribution, ad-hoc and intermittent links. In VANET via Named Data Networking, a vehicle can act in any of the following roles: 

  • Data Provider – The element that serves the number of vehicles in a road scenario is called a data provider.
  • Data User – The number of vehicles is called data consumers 
  • Data Mule – Entity that transport the data over an extended distance without having a connection with others
  • Forwarder – Entity which links with either other vehicles or infrastructure for data forwarding is referred to as forwarder  

Dissimilar to other sorts of portable devices, vehicles concern about the power supply, computation, storage capacity. On knowing this importance, our resource team will propose improved techniques and algorithms to design and develop an efficient V-NDN model. For your information, here we have given the execution procedure of the V-NDN model

Implementation of V-NDN

  • NDN Deamon (Local Faces Application)
  • Name Prefix Matching 
  • Packet forwarding
  • Essential abilities to manage data structure
  • NSN Local Faces 
    • Registration of application
    • Consumer to create interest request 
    • Content delivery to the consumer
    • V2V interface to utilize IEEE 802.11 (for W-Fi distribution)
  • NDN Network Faces (IP and Ad-hoc) 
    • Adaptive to use different technologies
  • NDN ADL 
    • Support Link Adaptation Layer schemes
  • NDN Location-based Services 

For better understanding, here we have given two different scenarios as V-NDN I2V, V-NDN V2I, and V-NDN V2V for explaining the packet routing procedure. Here, the communication takes place in both Ad-ho and IP tunnels. Let’s have a quick look over them:

How does packet routing work in VANET-NDN? 

V-NDN – Packet Routing in I2V

  • At first, the consumer sends the interest packets to the NDN HUB through internet
  • Then, the interest packets are forwarded to the Wi-Max client
  • Next, the interest packets are forwarded to the Ad-hoc
  • After that, the data packed node responses with content
  • Then, the content is forwarding
  • At last, the content is forwarded to the consumer who sends the interest packets

V-NDN – Packet Routing in V2I

  • At first, the consumer sends the interest packets to other vehicle through Ad-hoc
  • Then, the interest packets are forwarded
  • Next, the interest packets are forwarded to NDN Hub
  • After that, the interest packets are forwarded to recorded clients
  • Then, the data provider responses with content
  • Next, the content is forwarded to node who sends the interest packets on infrastructure
  • At last, the content is forwarding

V-NDN – Packet Routing in I2V

  • At first, the consumer sends the interest packets to the NDN HUB through W-Fi / Wi-Max
  • Then, the interest packets are forwarded to the Wi-Max client
  • Next, the interest packets are forwarded to the Ad-hoc
  • After that, the data packed node responses with content
  • At last, the content is forwarding

In recent times, NDN is greatly incorporating VANET oriented applications to signify their possible issues. For example, the data name concept of the NDN helps to detach the communication from particular endpoints and interfaces. So that, the vehicle can use the available interfaces to gather data from other physically connected nodes. For more clarity, here we have specified the major reasons for designing VANET via Named Data Networking.            

Why to use NDN for VANET projects?

  • Nowadays many vehicles are connected to the internet through any of the cellular technologies
  • The network of vehicles through RSU is implemented only in certain countries. However it has less number of deployments, the dedicated V2V communication applies to one hop for avoiding collision
  • Although various researches are conducting on V2V to enable numerous real-time applications, some have constraints over TCP/IP which leads to an inefficient fundamental framework
  • To support VANET, NDN architecture provides several features such as security, scalable data broadcasting, caching, etc. As a result, it creates VANET more capable than TCP/IP
