This paper proposes a modeling of expected link delay (i.e., data delivery delay) on a two-way road segment for carry-and-forward data delivery schemes in vehicular networks. Recently, a lot of vehicles can communicate with each other by dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) for vehicular networking. In the near future, more vehicles will be equipped with DSRC devices because of governmental policies for driving safety. In this paper, we derive a link delay model on a two-way road segment. This link delay model is essential to support multihop infrastructure-to-vehicle or vehicle-to-vehicle data delivery in vehicular networks as disruption tolerant networks. Through simulation, it is shown that our two-way link delay model is more accurate than the legacy two-way link delay model. Furthermore, by applying our model to data unicasting, we show that our model is precise enough to support the efficient data unicasting on vehicular networks.
