Abstract : Multi-hop message dissemination in vehicular networks has been largely studied in the past decade. It notably allows to push information to the drivers concerning hazards that they will encounter ahead on the road such as, for instance, traffic jams, ice patches, etc. It could thus reduce the number of car crashes. During the dissemination of the information, each node have to decide if it will forward a received packet or not. In the literature, many forwarding strategies have been proposed, but they are usually evaluated by simulation with simple mobility models. In this paper, we investigate the performance of several dissemination schemes on the Madrid Highway vehicular mobility trace. This trace is a realistic micro-mobility model representing 10 km portions of two highways around the city of Madrid. The main result of this paper is to show that a carry-and-forward version of farthest node dissemination strategy is a very promising scheme under realistic highway traffic conditions, because this scheme increases the number of receivers and distance covered by the packet at a very low cost in terms of traffic overhead and algorithmic complexity.
