  • Vehicular Network provides essential services to improve the road safety, extend the wireless connection coverage, and allow more reliable vehicle-to-vehicle communication. The key challenge of such networks is throttling the delay to satisfy certain Quality of Service (QoS). In this thesis, we employ the Lyapunov Optimizatin technique to derive an optimal system throughput, while at the same time meets the transmission delay constraint. The algorithm developed is implemented in a frame-based fashion: the decision is made only at the beginning of each vehicle arrival frame, which greatly simplifies the calculation overhead. The algorithm also yields strongly stable queue, which is always upper-bounded by a finite value.
