In order to minimize packet error rate in extremely dynamic vehicular networks, a novel vehicle to vehicle (V2V) mobile content transmission scheme that jointly employs random network coding and shuffling/scattering techniques is proposed in this paper. The proposed scheme consists of 3 steps: Step 1-The original mobile content data consisting of several packets is encoded to generate encoded blocks using random network coding for efficient error recovery. Step 2-The encoded blocks are shuffled for averaging the error rate among the encoded blocks. Step 3-The shuffled blocks are scattered at different vehicle locations to overcome the estimation error of optimum transmission location. Applying the proposed scheme in vehicular networks can yield error free transmission with high efficiency. Our simulation results corroborate that the proposed scheme significantly improves the packet error rate performance in high mobility environments. Thanks to the flexibility of network coding, the proposed scheme can be designed as a separate module in the physical layer of various wireless access technologies.
