Relative Location Determination In Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks

[Full Text]



Khalid Al Halasah, Dr. Saher Manaseer



VANET , GPS, location, (RSU).



Relative location determination in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET) is a field of location studies, that researches the exchange of location between vehicles and gives a service for end users to help them, this thesis suggests a new approach for VANET to exchange the location without using Global Positioning System (GPS) map or Roadside Units (RSU), by exchanging the location between vehicles that already have location and update their location or update other vehicles’ location. Other approaches work on GPS and/or RSUs to exchange the location and give the location to the vehicle, but the accuracy of the GPS is not good in some areas or places and some roads have not been equipped with RSUs. The suggested approach consists of three cases; the first case is when a vehicle loses a GPS signal, the second case is to start looking for the location in an area with no GPS coverage, and the last case is the low accuracy of GPS location data. Using this approach will introduce a hybrid system that can give the users many ways to get an accurate location and exchange their location with other vehicles. It can also be utilized for many services that will help companies and service providers. The result confirm that the system can add values to the accuracy with more than 3% from the average of the system of the accuracy that the system have already started with and we can transfer the location data to more than 95% of total nodes.
