5G handover issues and techniques for vehicular communications

Muhamad Ali Zuhdi Rosli, Siti Fatimah Abdul Razak, Sumendra Yogarayan


Vehicular communication is gaining popularity, and seamless handover is critical to maintaining a stable and uninterrupted network connection between vehicles and roadside units. This paper investigates the advancements in handover approaches in vehicular networks, with a specific focus on 5G technology. Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) face challenges due to high mobility, dynamic network topology, and frequent information exchange. The paper discusses handover issues in 5G VANET environments, such as too-late and too-early handovers, wrong handover decisions, and unnecessary handovers. It also explores key performance indicators (KPIs) used in handover evaluation. The advancements in handover approaches presented in this paper pave the way for enhanced connectivity and communication management in 5G VANETs, contributing to the development of safer and more efficient intelligent transportation systems.
