THE INFLUENCE OF THE PACKET SIZE ON END TO END DELAY OF VIDEO DATA CODED WITH RAPTORQ CODES AND NETWORK CODES IN VEHICULAR ADHOC NETWORKS

Abstract
The transmission of video files in Vehicular Adhoc Networks (VANETs) has become very prevalent as commuters prefer video data during travel. The delay with which the data is received becomes very significant as video packets received after their scheduled deadlines become useless. The performance of the network may significantly be reduced on such packet drops especially with mobile networks. This work aims at the reduction of end to end delay of video packets by applying the two techniques- Network Coding (NC) and RaptorQ (RQ) codes. The techniques are implemented in four VANET scenarios and an extensive analysis is done by varying the packet sizes during the transmission of three files of various sizes. The End to End Delay (EED) and Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR) are measured and plotted for all scenarios. The results show the influence of packet size on these parameters considered and the suitability of the techniques applied. The observations also show that RQ proves better for smaller files and NC suits better when the file size increases.
