Cooperative Vehicular Content Distribution in the Drive-thru Internet
Internet and vehicle now representing two most prominent elements of our modern lives, providing in-vehicle Internet access to road travelers has become ever more important [1, 2]. In this chapter, we develop a cooperative Drive-thru Internet framework for large-volume data distribution to vehicles in the highway environment. In specific, note that in the highway scenario, vehicles typically move along a linear topology and drive through the RSU consecutively. We thus propose to form vehicles into a chain cluster so that the cluster members would drive through the RSU consecutively in a sequential order.
