  abstract = {In this paper, we propose a novel position-based routing protocol
	designed to anticipate the characteristics of an urban VANET environment.
	The proposed algorithm utilizes the prediction of the node's position
	and navigation information to improve the efficiency of routing protocol
	in a vehicular network. In addition, we use the information about
	link layer quality in terms of SNIR and MAC frame error rate to further
	improve the efficiency of the proposed routing protocol. This in
	particular helps to decrease end-to-end delay. Finally, carry-n-forward
	mechanism is employed as a repair strategy in sparse networks. It
	is shown that use of this technique increases packet delivery ratio,
	but increases end-to-end delay as well and is not recommended for
	QoS constraint services. Our results suggest that compared with GPSR,
	our proposal demonstrates better performance in the urban environment.},

  abstract = {In this paper we present simulation results for our
	implementation of Adaptive Route Change (ARC) application for
	cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The general
	purpose of the application is to generate recommendations for
	alternative driving routes in order to avoid traffic congestion.
	The Adaptive Route Change (ARC) application is implemented
	in an integrated cooperative ITS simulation platform. For the
	evaluation we chose a reference scenario defining two distinct
	traffic flows through an urban area that provides four crossings
	with traffic light controls. We were interested to evaluate the
	impacts of ARC on fuel and traffic efficiency. For that we introduced
	five performance metrics (average trip duration, average
	fuel consumption, average stop duration, maximum queue size
	and average queue size behind traffic lights) and evaluated ARC
	in a series of simulations with varied application penetration
	rates and traffic volume. The results indicate that ARC systems
	could reduce traffic congestion in intersections and improve fuel
	consumption. We observe up to one quarter reduction in average
	trip time and almost one third reduction in average stop time.
	Fuel consumption is also reduced by up to 17.3%, while average
	queue size and maximum queue size reduce more than 50%.},

  doi = {10.1002/wcm.2578},
  abstract = {This paper presents a comprehensive study of the performance of routing 
  protocols in distributed vehicular networks. We propose a novel and efficient routing 
  protocol, namely Cross-Layer, Weighted, Position-based Routing (CLWPR), which considers 
  link quality, mobility and utilisation of nodes in a cross layer manner to make effective 
  position-based forwarding decisions. An Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) approach is 
  utilised to combine multiple decision criteria into a single weighting function and to 
  perform a comparative evaluation of the effects of aforementioned criteria on forwarding 
  decisions. Comprehensive simulations are performed in realistic representative urban 
  scenarios with synthetic and real traffic. Insights on the effect of different communication 
  and mobility parameters are obtained. The results demonstrate that the proposed protocol 
  outperforms existing routing protocols for VANETs, including ETSI’s proposed greedy 
  routing protocol, GyTAR, and AGF in terms of combined packet delivery ratio, end-to-end 
  delay, and overhead.}
