Data Transmission Performance of DSRC (5.8GHz) Typed Pedestrian-Vehicle Communication to Avoid Conflict between Right-Turn Vehicles and Pedestrians, Part 2

In Japan, where vehicles travel on the left side of the road (i.e., right turns correspond to left turns in the U.S.), right turns have the potential to give heavy workloads to drivers at an intersection. There is a need to support driver decisions used by data transmission for pedestrian-to-vehicle communication. The authors conducted a field experiment at the experimental intersection to show the data transmission performance of DSRC (5.8GHz) type Pedestrian-Vehicle communication to avoid conflict between right-turn vehicles and walking pedestrians. The study found that the right-turning vehicle could communicate with the pedestrians at their preferable positions via the Inter-Vehicle Communication (IVC) device. Also, the IVC device could alert the pedestrians to the presence of right-turning vehicles that have higher risk at the conflict point.
