Abstract—An interesting application of wireless MANETs that is emerging with a high potential for research and development is the inter-vehicle communication where nodes collect and distribute traffic information while moving in urban areas. Broadcasting is a key component to vehicular communication with the aim of high coverage and low medium consumption. Existing broadcasting schemes, however, result in redundancy and medium contention. In this paper a broadcasting scheme with intelligent neighbourhood sensing is produced and tested in two Vehicle Ad Hoc Network (VANET) contexts. Simulation results show that our scheme reduces the amount of unneeded transmissions through the medium even under high density with high traffic loads while maintaining comparable network coverage.
