Abstract

Due to the high mobility of vehicular nodes in VANETs, there are high chances of partitions in the network. In such a situation, the protocols developed for VANETs cannot work well and an alternative network known as DTN (delay tolerant network) is capable enough to deal with VANET characteristics. The network which does not need any immediate data delivery and can wait for time and delivery of data is known as DTN. The concept of hold and forward the message is exploited by DTN. In this chapter, the authors are providing characteristics, architecture, and applications of delay tolerant vehicular ad-hoc networks.

Introduction

Due to high mobility of vehicular nodes in VANETs there are high chances of partitions in the network. In such situation the protocols developed for VANETs cannot work well and an alternative network known as DTN (Delay Tolerant Network) (Tornell, Calafate, Cano, & Manzoni, 2015; Singh, V, 2018) is capable enough to deal with VANET characteristics. This chapter describes the various features of DTN concentrating on those which effect most to the routing and forwarding protocols implementation e.g. path selection, network architectures and end node resource constraints.
