Vulnerable Road Users Detection Using V2X Communications

Vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communications allow to sharing real-time information among the vehicles that circulate on the nearby road areas. These communications systems are today in an early stage of development and the effort are focused into two directions, on one hand, the development of the communications infrastructure to support the information exchange. On the other hand, the development of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) as well as safety systems that takes advantages of these communications. Additionally, the V2V communications systems are mainly focused to cars and trucks, showing less concern for Vulnerable Road Users, pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists. In this paper a novel ADAS is presented, focused to avoid accidents that involve motorcyclist and cyclists using V2V communications, incorporating them to the vehicular networking taking into account the intrinsic features of each collective and adapting to increase their safety.
