Context-Aware Protocol Adaptation
Vehicular safety applications demand low latency and high reliability, while non-safety applications demand high throughput, in channel conditions that vary rapidly due to fading and mobility.

The key insight we make is that, in vehicular networks, each node already possesses context information about the environment, in the form of the location and speed of itself and its neighbors. This context information is a direct, predictable and real-time indicator of the link quality and can be used to perform fast protocol adaptation at the vehicular link layer.
