Advanced heterogeneous vehicular network (AHVN) is a promising architecture for providing vehicular services in the next generation of vehicular networks. AHVN is an integrated architecture between vehicular ad hoc networks and existing cellular wireless networks. In this work, we propose a Multihop vehicular connectivity model in V2V system, which depends on the physical characteristics of the roadways and false hop initiation connectivity. Then, we determine the failure probability of vehicular connectivity in V2V system. Based on interoperability utility, we employ the failure connectivity probability as a handover criterion to communicate with V2R networks. Subsequently, we propose an efficient medium access control (MAC) method based on collaborative codes for resource management in AHVN. As a result, we determine the failure access probability by employing a Markov chain model. The analysis of the proposed MAC in terms of transmission capacity, delay and access failure probability is driven. The numerical and simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework.
