A Deep Learning Mechanism for Efficient Information Dissemination in Vehicular Floating Content

Gaetano Manzo, Juan Sebastian Otálora Montenegro, Gianluca Rizzo

Handling the tremendous amount of network data, produced by the explosive growth of mobile traffic volume, is becoming of main priority to achieve desired performance targets efficiently. Opportunistic communication such as FloatingContent (FC), can be used to offload part of the cellular traffic volume to vehicular-to-vehicular communication (V2V), leaving the infrastructure the task of coordinating the communication. Existing FC dimensioning approaches have limitations, mainly due to unrealistic assumptions and on a coarse partitioning of users, which results in over-dimensioning. Shaping the opportunistic communication area is a crucial task to achieve desired application performance efficiently. In this work, we propose a solution for this open challenge. In particular, the broadcasting areas called Anchor Zone (AZ), are selected via a deep learning approach to minimize communication resources achieving desired message availability. No assumption required to fit the classifier in both synthetic and real mobility. A numerical study is made to validate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed method. The predicted AZ configuration can achieve an accuracy of 89.7%within 98% of confidence level. By cause of the learning approach, the method performs even better in real scenarios, saving up to 27% of resources compared to previous work analytically modelled
