Adopting the Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture for Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) can help improve the communication among vehicles because of the data-centric nature of NDN. Routing in vehicular NDNs is still a challenge because of high mobility and intermittent connections. This paper proposes a new progressive segment routing approach that takes into consideration how vehicles are distributed among different roads, with the goal of choosing well-traveled roads over less-traveled roads to reduce the failure rate of packet delivery. A novel criterion for determining progress of routing is designed to guarantee that the destination will be reached even if a temporary loop may be formed in the path. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed progressive segment routing algorithm can achieve better performance than existing algorithms for vehicular NDNs.
