Information-centric networking (ICN) is being applied to the vehicular networks by more and more researchers on account of its lightweight and connectionless networking paradigm and in-network caching characteristics, making it suitable for the dynamic environments of vehicular networks. However, wireless transmission of interest packets to find content in the network may lead to broadcast storms that can affect the performance of information dissemination severely. This paper proposes a distance assisted data dissemination method with broadcast storm suppressing mechanism (DASB) for supporting rapid and efficient information dissemination in ICN-based vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). Geo-position data of vehicles are used to accelerate packet forwarding, and vehicular nodes in certain areas are restricted to forward packets in order to suppress the broadcast storm. Simulation results show that the proposed method can greatly reduce the total number of packets transmitted in the network, and the successful information delivery ratio and information delivery time can also be improved.
