In this paper, a novel Network Coding (NC)-aided
Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol with mobility support
(NCMOB-MAC) is presented. The proposed protocol is compatible
with Automatic Repeat reQuest (ARQ) techniques and can be
applied in Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs). NCMOB-MAC
proposes a new way of coordinating the communication between
a sender, a moving destination and a set of fixed relay nodes.
The relays employ different Contention Window (CW) sizes to
assign priorities and optimize the NC opportunities. Extensive
simulations have been carried out to evaluate the performance of
the protocol and the results show an improvement in throughput
and energy efficiency compared to conventional NC-aided MAC
