A dedicated spectrum portion at 5 GHz is available to provide services in vehicular environments (e.g., road safety, traffic efficiency, comfort and infotainment services). The multitude of non-safety critical services offered by roadside and mobile providers can be accessed by vehicles under radio coverage if they listen to the advertisement messages announcing the service configuration parameters and tune to the announced frequency to access the service. Due to intermittent and short connectivity periods, timely and successful advertisements reception is crucial to enable a vehicle accessing available services while it is still connected to the provider.
In this paper, we design an analytical model of the service advertisement and access procedure for dual-radio vehicular devices. Moreover, we enhance the advertisement phase with a simple technique of message repetition and channel switching coordination, which helps in making vehicles aware of local services promptly coping with channel impairments and collisions. The model flexibly accounts for channel switching, message repetitions, access prioritization, and interference by contending traffic on the channel where service announcements are regularly transmitted. ©2016 Elsevier Inc.
