Abstract: Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) network is a promising technology to enhance road safety. It is also the fundamental technology to implement vehicular technology and application such as autonomous driving, firmware over the air (FOTA) for in-vehicle electronic control unit (ECU). However, the IP based on end-host addressing is not well suited for certain vehicular applications. Content-centric networking (CCN) is a promising paradigm of future internet architecture. CCN communication is based on content but not address due to the fact that content becomes more important than address. Especially in V2V network, candidates prefer content rather than location. Therefore, a novel-naming scheme based on CCN for V2V communication scenario is proposed. Also, a novel forwarding mechanism well suited for this naming scheme is proposed. The simulation results show that the proposed mechanism is much more efficient than the current proposal and is a promising solution for the vehicular information network in the future.
