Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Communications Design in Urban Hyperfractals
In  presented at SPAWC our goal is to increase the awareness about the communication opportunities that arise in urban vehicle networks when exploiting the self-similarity and hierarchical organization of modern cities. The work uses our innovative model called " hyperfractal " that captures the self-similarity of the urban vehicular networks as well as incorporating roadside infrastructure with its own self-similarity. We use analytical tools to provide achievable trade-offs in operating the roadside units under the constraint of minimum routing path delay while maintaining a reasonably balanced load. The models and results are supported by simulations with different city hyperfractal dimensions in two different routing scenarios: nearest neighbor routing with no collision and minimum delay routing model assuming slotted Aloha, signal to interference ratio (SIR) capture condition, power-path loss, Rayleigh fading.
