    Piggybacking on beacons is a forwarding technique that is regularly used in vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) research as a means to disseminate data. With this technique data is attached to and transmitted along with scheduled beacons, without changing the timing of the beacons. The performance of piggybacking largely depends on network parameters such as the network density, the beaconing frequency, etc. It is our goal to model the performance of piggybacking as a function of such parameters. In this paper we present our methodology to achieve this goal, and show some first conclusions w.r.t. which network parameters should be taken into account in our model.
