Abstract: Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET) currently used by the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) make use of wireless communication technology that include protocols and applications that provide increased safety for crash prevention and non-safety applications to improve comfortable driving experience among vehicle users on roads. The channel utilized for the transmission of network packets for awareness are congested due to vehicles competing to use the channel leading to packet loss, high transmission delay and unfair resource usage. An approach is proposed to include a rate control to a power-controlled algorithm to prioritize awareness to nearby vehicles that require more safety resources and not as much awareness to faraway vehicles. In the proposed work, we will investigate the effects of various factors affecting the performance of a dynamic congestion control algorithm, such as power levels, rate of transmission and vehicle speed.
