A New Spectrum Management Scheme for Road Safety in Smart Cities

Traffic management in roads is one of the major challenges faced in developing efficient intelligent transportation systems. Recently, wireless networks have received significant attention for tackling this challenge. However, wireless technologies face the well-known spectrum scarcity problem due to the explosive demand for radio resources. To overcome this challenge, this study presents a novel intelligent traffic control system, utilizing the unused spectrum. Unlike existing works, the spectrum owners in this study hire free spectrum to drivers. The hired spectrum is deployed to build a short-range cost-effective wireless communication for monitoring traffic and enabling drivers to exchange warning messages, and thus enhancing road safety. The authors objectives include minimizing crash probability, utilizing unused spectrum, and enabling spectrum owners to generate extra revenue. Numerical analysis demonstrates the capability of their approach to minimize the crash probability among vehicles under different operating road conditions.
