Abstract

During these last years, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) have experienced a great growth in both areas: academic and industrial. ITS which aim to increase safety and comfort for users' transport, are essentially governed by Vehicular Ad hoc Networks: VANETs. In such networks, nodes represent smart vehicles that can communicate either between themselves to exchange traffic information or with roadside infrastructure to disseminate or request useful information. Therefore, the congestion control remains one of the most challenging problems of these networks. This paper surveys congestion control techniques, which are divided into three categories: Rate adaptation, Media access control (MAC) and trajectory based schemes. For each technique we give its principle, its merits and its limits. A comparative study with respect to some relevant metrics is given as well.
