Vehicular communication is regarded as a backbone for the development of intelligent transportation system.Since efficient data exchange is needed for most crucialapplications (warning of road accident, traffic congestion etc).One of the main challengein the study of Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network is the data dissemination design by which messages must be efficiently disseminated in a high vehicular speed, intermittent connectivity, and highly dynamic topology. Broadcast mechanism should guarantee fast and reliable data delivery within a limited wireless bandwidth to fit the real-time application requirements. In this work, we propose a simple and efficient cluster head adaptive data dissemination protocol to reduce broadcast storm problem. Each vehicle can dynamically define an appropriate probability of rebroadcast to mitigate the broadcast storm problem. Efficiency is manifested by reducing excessive retransmitted messages and hence boosting the network capacity and minimizing the transmission delay. The simulation results show that the proposed protocol outperforms state of the art in terms of offeringvery low packet drop ratio and network load while still maintaining a low end-to-end delay and a high packet delivery rate which is suitable either for safety and other applications in ITS. This mechanism can adapt the protocol performance in terms of packet delivery ratio to the application’s requirements.
