Construction of Inter-Vehicle Communication Platform Based on WAVE Protocol

A novel inter-vehicle communication prototype system is proposed. First, related inter-vehicle communication systems around the world are introduced. Then, a Wireless Access in Vehicular Environment (WAVE) based inter-vehicle communication system is presented from a viewpoint of object-oriented architecture, which mainly consisting of a vehicle-vehicle communication module, a message management module, and a positioning information module; all these modules, as well as their interfaces, are described. Finally, an inter-vehicle communication prototype system based on WAVE technology was conducted at Tongji University to show the feasibility of the proposed system. Three vehicles were deployed in a field test, and each vehicle was equipped with on-board equipment such as GPS and an inter-vehicle communication function with 5.8 GHz designated short-range communications (DSRC) designed for dedicated use in the prototype system. The test results indicate that this inter-vehicle system is ready for expanded research.
