Automated Position System Implementation over Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks in 2-Dimension Space

Soumen Kanrar and Mohammad Siraj


Problem statement: The real world scenario have changed from the wired connection to wireless connection. Over the years software development has responded to the increasing growth of wireless connectivity in developing network enabled software. The problem arises in the wireless domain due to random packet loss in transport layer and as well as in data link layer for the end to end connection. The basic problem we have considered in this paper is to convert the real world scenario of “Vehicular ad hoc network” into lab oriented problem by used the APS-system and study the result to achieve better performance in wireless domain. Approach: We map the real world physical problem into analytical problem and simulate that analytic problem with respect to real world scenario by Automated Position System (APS) for antenna mounted over the mobile node in 2D space. Results: We quantify the performance and the impact of the packet loss, delay, by the bit error rate and throughput with respect to the real world scenario of VANET in the MAC layer, data link layer and transport layer. Conclusion: We observe that the Directional the Antenna which is mounted over the vehicle gives less bit error in comparison to Isotropic and Discone antenna.
