Due to good maneuverability, UAVs and vehicles are often used for environment perception in smart cities. In order to improve the efficiency of sensor data sharing in UAV-assisted mmWave vehicular network (VN), this paper proposes a sensor data sharing method based on blockage effect identification and network coding. The concurrent sending vehicles selection method is proposed based on the availability of mmWave link, the number of target vehicles of sensor data packet, the distance between a sensor data packet and target vehicle, the number of concurrent sending vehicles, and the waiting time of sensor data packet. The construction method of the coded packet is put forward based on the status information about the existing packets of vehicles. Simulation results demonstrated that efficiency of the proposed method is superior to baseline solutions in terms of the packet loss ratio, transmission time, and packet dissemination ratio.
