Abstract

In this article, a robust and distributed incentive scheme for in-network caching and dissemination in cellular-based Vehicular Delay-Tolerant Networks (REPSYS) is proposed. REPSYS is robust because despite taking into account first- and second-hand information, it is resilient against false accusations and praise, and distributed, as the decision to interact with another vehicle depends entirely on each vehicle. The performance evaluation shows that REPSYS is capable, while evaluating each vehicle’s participation in the network to classify correctly vehicles in most cases. In addition, it reveals that there are trade-offs in REPSYS, for example, to reduce detection time of vehicles that neither cache nor disseminate other vehicles’ data, one may sacrifice the system’s resilience against false accusations and praise, or even, by penalizing vehicles that do not disseminate data, one may temporarily isolate vehicles that could contribute to data dissemination.
