Multi Agent Based Congestion Control in VANETs

Ramesh B. Koti and Mahabaleshwar S. K.
Abstract—Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANET) play an important role in future on road Vehicle-to-Vehicle communication systems and related applications like self-organizing, acquiring traffic information using sensors and disseminating it to the nearby vehicles, which are based on broadcast/geocast transmission schemes. It is a challenging task to manage networks in a dynamic environment due to the characteristic of high mobility rate, high relative speed, different driver behaviors and unpredictable link failure occurrences. One of the main criteria in VANETs that has attracted the researchers' consideration is congestion control. Congestion is a major problem all over world, resulting in wastage of valuable time and money. In this paper, we propose multi agent based congestion control scheme, which intelligently acquires the status of the neighboring node information and decides the congestion free path for the safe delivery of packets. Multi agent scheme consists of set of static and mobile agents. Proposed approach guarantees the reliability and timely delivery of messages. Multi agent based scheme exhibits better bandwidth usage and packet delivery ratio and minimizes the latency

Index Terms—VANETs, multi agent, latency, bandwidth, congestion control.
