2015. This paper studies vehicle multihop connectivity of vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) on two parallel roads. It complements our earlier studies by considering a road separation distance larger than 32L and considering signal blockage between roads, where L represents the transmission range. Assuming vehicles follow Poisson processes, we specifically derive exact formulas for the expectation, variance, and probability distribution of the information propagation distance. We further develop a closed form approximation for the expected distance. The analytical results are verified and compared with those from other headway distributions of varying coefficient of variation through Monte Carlo simulation.
