Vehicle Collision Avoidance Algorithm at Blind Crossing Based on Internet-Connected Vehicles

Vehicle collision at blind crossings is always a critical problem. While many kinds of methods have been proposed to improve intersection safety in the past, the rate of intersection accidents has not significantly changed. With the development of wireless communication technology, vehicular networks that communicate with each other have innovative applications in traffic safety and congestion. On the basis of Internet-Connected Vehicles, this paper puts forward a vehicle collision avoidance algorithm. After analyzing vehicle collision scenarios at intersections, the vehicle detection methods are discussed and vehicle collision avoidance algorithms are proposed. Finally, simulation studies are carried out and the results prove that the proposed cooperative collision avoidance algorithms under Internet-Connected Vehicles environment can provide a smooth trajectory for each vehicle moving in the vicinity of the crossing without a collision.
