Stefan Joerer, "Improving Intersection Safety with IVC," Proceedings of International Conference on Networked Systems (NetSys 2013), PhD Forum, Stuttgart, Germany, March 2013.


Research in Inter-Vehicle Communication (IVC) is currently deeply investigating safety applications as they are potentially the main driver to use Dedicated Short-Range Communication (DSRC) radios in addition to other safety-enabling technologies like radar, ultrasonic sensors, and stereo cameras. One envisioned safety application is the so-called Intersection Collision Warning System (ICWS) which warns the driver if other approaching vehicles endanger the own vehicle by ignoring traffic rules or misinterpretation of dangerous situations for example. Building such an intersection safety application still reveals several challenges regarding communication requirements, like the minimum information dissemination rate. These IVC applications will not only be evaluated with the help of network metrics like delay, jitter, goodput and channel utilization, but in terms of safety, i.e. how many crashes can be avoided and how the severity of the impact can be reduced in case of still resulting crashes. To investigate the effectiveness of such intersection safety applications we mainly rely on simulation, but we aim to conduct real-world measurements where applicable.
