Abstract

The relatively low height of antennas on communicating vehicles in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) makes one hop and as well multi-hop Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication susceptible to obstruction by other vehicles on the road. When the transmitter or receiver (or both) is a Tall vehi- cle, (i.e., truck), the V2V communication suffer less from these obstructions. The transmission power control is an important feature in the design of (multi- hop) VANET communication algorithms. However, the benefits of choosing a Tall vehicle when transmission power is varied are not yet extensively re- searched. Therefore, the main contribution of this paper is to evaluate the im- pact of transmission power control on the improved V2V communication capa- bilities of tall vehicles. Based on simulations, it is shown that significant bene- fits are observed when a Tall vehicle is selected rather than a Short vehicle as a next V2V communication hop to relay packets. Moreover, the simulation exper- iments show that as the transmission power is increasing, the rate of Tall vehi- cles that are selected as best next V2V communication hop is significantly growing.
