  • Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chandigarh University, Mohali - 140413, Punjab, India


Background/Objectives: In the current work, a new approach named as Secure Data dissemination scheme for Vehicular Relay Network based Predictive Clustering has been accomplished by incorporating fuzzy decision system and secure vehicle authentication mechanism to improve our existing solution Energy Efficient Predictive Clustering approach. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In past several years, tremendous growth has been observed in vehicular network capabilities for information processing, which makes it an enthralling research area. Integration of vehicular network with next generation of wireless communication technologies provides increased comfort and safety for passengers in the vehicle. The network topology of vehicular networks is highly dynamic in nature that results in high overhead because of the missing central control and increased network traffic. However, to maintain quality of service without compromising any critical parameters is a challenging task in the vehicular networks. Hence, there is a requirement of an intelligent data dissemination technique that minimizes the complexity of the network by providing a backbone architecture that collects the node into multiple clusters. Findings: The performance evaluation of the introduced scheme is estimated using pervasive simulations confirm the effectiveness of the proposed scheme in terms of improved cluster stability and longer cluster head lifetime that decrease the overhead while also demonstrating improved reliability. Application/ Improvements: This scheme helps in improving the data deamination and security in the vehicular relay network that can be beneficial for those real time applications where data delivered on time is essential like emergency alerts, critical passenger information and traffic information.
