The inherent characteristics of vehicular networks, such as dynamic topology and high mobility, pose significant challenges for the deployment of delay-sensitive applications, e.g., video streaming, in urban Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET). In this paper, we propose an integrated network-layer scheme for seamless delivery of video packets in VANET. First, we propose a new quality-driven routing scheme for delivering video streams from a fixed network to a destination vehicle via multihop communications. The routing scheme aims to optimize the visual quality of the transmitted video frames by minimizing the distortion, the start-up delay, and the frequency of the streaming freezes. We further propose an efficient network mobility management scheme, which introduces a novel adaptation of Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6) for multi-hop VANET scenarios, and incorporates a handover prediction mechanism. Numerical results are given to demonstrate that our integrated scheme can achieve a better performance for the video quality metrics, the handover delay and the signalling cost.
