For communication systems of automobiles, hot spot networks using wireless LAN are attractive in that broad bandwidth is available at low cost. Further, inter-vehicle ad hoc networks organized by cars are expected to cooperate with the hot spot network and effectively extend the coverage of the hot spot network. The authors have proposed base-station-assisted link state routing method(BALSR)[1] that is effective for large scale inter-vehicle ad hoc networks. This paper presents performance evaluation of BALSR, and it shows that BALSR significantly reduces the number of conrol packets in the ad hoc network compared to conventional link state routing method.
