Video is playing a more and more important role in future Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) communication. It is a feasible medium for information sharing and entertainment (infotainment) with its high capacity, consistency and influence on human beings. This paper introduces the SVC coding scheme to VANET video streaming. We propose an Optimal Scheduling Algorithm (OSA) for video streaming in highway VANET scenarios using scalable video coding (SVC). We conduct extensive simulations to evaluate the performance of OSA. Simulation results show that OSA outperforms all the competing schemes over variant density and velocity highway VANET.
