Abstract: The Medium Access Control (MAC) etiquette is liable for partaking the communal medium amongst the competing nodules. The unique characteristics of VANET enforce many restrictions onto the MAC protocol design. The main aims of a VANET MAC protocol are fairness, Quality of Service (QoS), reliability and so on. In case of V2V communication in VANET, if the target vehicle is not reachable, then packets may not be transmitted correctly. In this paper, a Mobility Aware Cooperative MAC protocol (MAC-MAC) for successful transmission in VANET is proposed. In this protocol, when data is transmitted from V2V, the packet error rate (PER) and packet delivery ratio (PDR) metrics are checked at the receiver end. Depending on these values, the transmission mode of the source is changed as DIRECT or COOPERATIVE. In cooperative mode, the source selects the potential relay nodes based on the residence time and distance to the receiver. By experimental results, it is shown that the proposed MAC-MAC protocol has reduced packet drops, delay and overhead with increased packet delivery ratio.
