Evaluation of Car-2-X scenarios for automated driving

Car-to-X technology enables vehicles to directly exchange information with other vehicles or with roadside infrastructure components using standardized communication and message protocols. Such a communication technology is necessary to deploy cooperative intelligent transport systems (ITS), which make driving safer, more efficient and more convenient. Therefore, several cooperative Car-to-X use cases were defined to improve road safety and traffic efficiency, which will be introduced in different stages. In this paper, we are evaluating major use cases of the early deployment phase — such as electronic emergency brake lights, traffic jam ahead, or weather warning — with respect to their suitability to automated driving. We will see that their current specification only have minor contributions for improving automated driving scenarios. However, we will also see that by improving these use cases we may achieve a significant impact on automated driving technology. Moreover, our evaluation shows that Car-to-X needs to be considered as an essential base technology for cooperative automated driving scenarios.
