Vehicular-to-vehicular (V2V) communications requires a reliable information interchange system. However, in a three-dimensional environment, inevitable obstructions (e.g., road topology and buildings) need to be considered in order to design data forwarding schemes. As one approach, Vehicle-to-Vehicle Urban Network (V2VUNet) introduces Vertical Relative Angle (VRA) as one of the significant factors in the case of a three-dimensional environment. VRA locates a participating vehicle’s coordinates more precisely, when its position cannot be calculated based only on distance. Therefore, the increased location precision leads to several forwarding algorithms (e.g., prediction mobility and transmission area efficiency), which are expected to overcome frequent topology changes and re-routing.
