Abstract:As automobiles become more intelligent, research on the Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) also becomes more important. Leader election is an important piece of the puzzle that can be utilized to solve many other problems in VANET. However, most existing literatures either focus on Virtual Traffic Light (VTL) application or leader election in regular ad hoc networks. In this thesis, we focus on creating a generalized algorithm for leader election in VANET and designing a group management mechanism to address various scenarios. In addition, simulations are conducted to evaluate performance of proposed algorithms.
