Simple Results on Communication With Neighbors

In this report, the authors address the issue of communications in an automated highway system (AHS). In order to establish communication with the receiver's address, an address finding protocol is required. The authors describe an address finding protocol which uses the absolute location of vehicles . The distance between vehicles is examined as another way of building an Address Finding Protocol. It is proven that no such protocol can exist, and therefore, the proposed protocol which uses the absolute location of vehicles to be the optimal choice.
