This paper proposes a novel approach to clustering the interests of car drivers, increasing the lifetime of interest groups, and increasing the throughput in vehicle-to-vehicle environments. It develops an interest ontology of cellular automata (CA) clustering using the zone of interest (ZOI) for mobicast communications in vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) environments. The key to the proposed method is to integrate CA clustering with the ontology of users' interests. This paper argues for the use of both an interest profile (ontology) of drivers and information about vehicles to form a group of VANET-related interests. The current study evaluates the performance of the approach by conducting computer simulations. Simulation results reveal the strengths of the proposed CA clustering algorithm in terms of increased group lifetime and increased ZOI throughput for VANETs.
