The Intelligent Transportation Systems concept provides the ground to enable a wide range of applications to improve traffic safety and efficiency. Innovative communication systems must be proposed taking into account, on the one hand, unstable characteristics of vehicular communications and, on the other hand, different requirements of applications. In this paper a reliable (geo-)broadcasting scheme for vehicular ad-hoc networks is proposed and analyzed. This receiver-based technique aims at fulfilling the received message integrity yet keeping the overhead at a reasonably low level. The results are compared to simulation studies carried out in the Network Simulator-3 (NS-3) simulation environment demonstrating good agreement with each other. The analysis shows that in a single-hop scenario, receiver-based reliable broadcasting can provide good reliability, while giving very little overhead for high number of receivers.
