Cluster Head selection Based Routing Protocol for VANET Using Bully Algorithm and Lamport Timestamp

Pramodh Kavisha Dharmawardena and Zhanjie Wang
Abstract—Abstract—Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is a kind of special wireless ad hoc network, which has a high node mobility and fast topology changes. Clustering is a technique for grouping nodes together, making the network more robust. Clustering is an important research topic in wireless networks, because cluster structures can facilitate resource reuse and increase system capacity. Clustering has been found as a solution for VANET’s high mobility. Also selecting the cluster head and maintaining the stability of the clustered VANET nodes are essential for better communication. Cluster stability and maintaining it, is an important goal that clustering algorithms try to achieve and it is considered as a measure of performance of a clustering algorithm, further selecting the proper cluster head is crucial to maintain the stability of the clustered network. To achieve, this paper propose a combination of bully algorithm and Lamport timestamp for selecting the better cluster head and also for Cluster head switching in an efficient way for better performance in the stability of VANET nodes.
