Deploying road-side WiFi access points has made possible internet access in a vehicle, nevertheless it is challenging to maintain client performance at vehicular speed especially when multiple mobile users exist. This paper considers the association control problem for vehicular WiFi access in the Drive-thru Internet scenario. In particular, we aim to improve the efficiency and fairness for all users. We design efficient algorithms to achieve these objectives through several techniques including approximation. Our simulation results demonstrate that our algorithms can achieve significantly better performance than conventional approaches.
