Abstract: Quick advancements in wireless and mobile communications have made an outlook change in human life styles. Vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) is an emerging and challenging technology in mobile communication. Vehicle to infrastructure communication is a cornerstone for providing a wide plethora of VANET. To offer an acceptable quality of service, this work considers placing the road side unit (RSU) appropriately for efficient communication. This paper proposes to provide the desired geometry based coverage strategy using Voronoi sweep line algorithm for partitioning the target area and uses the genetic approach for optimal location identification for successful deployment of RSU. The proposed work will further extend to enabling the better connectivity using some handoff mechanisms. Simulation results illustrate that the proposed coverage protocol works surpass in highway vehicular networks.
