    Abstract

    Breakdown or interruption of communication infrastructure is one of the most immediate and significant impacts of natural disasters. This paper is devoted to the modeling of the successful uplink in Vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANET) in disaster cases where vehicles encounter disrupted communication. The packets' size to be transmitted, the vehicles' speed, the infrastructure coverage range, the disconnected distance, and the number of copies sent have a strong influence on the probability of success for uploading the packets. A simple connectionless retransmission scheme is proposed where several copies of the same packet are transmitted to make sure that the vehicle will upload successfully at least one copy of the packet. The optimum number of retransmission and the choice of inter-frame gap required between successive copy packets are also found. In this respect, this paper studies the mentioned parameters' effect on the probability of success for the uplink and the throughput. MATLAB was used to run a simulation and validate the theoretical analysis.
