Development of Radio & Optical Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication for the Automated Truck Platooning

This paper presents a research and development of high reliable Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication that is essential technology to achieve an automated platooning. The automated truck platooning is expected to improve fuel consumption and transportation. V2V communication plays a crucial role in the automated truck platooning, to exchange vehicle control information directly between vehicles. Therefore, the V2V communication used in the platooning is required higher reliability (target packet delivery rate: 99.92%) than existing V2V communication for the safe driving assistance applications. Further, to improve system reliability, the authors adopted the reduplication of radio V2V and optical V2V communications for the platooning. This research and development (R&D) is a part of "Energy ITS" project of New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). In the project, simulation PDR experiments and field tests by prototype were evaluated. As the result, it was confirmed that 4 trucks platooning experiments achieved the final target with 4m gap distance at 80km/h.
