Evaluation of the Collision Avoidance and Vehicular Information-Exchange Anchored Relay (CAVIAR) System

Collision avoidance requires knowledge regarding the condition of the vehicle’s surroundings. In order to obtain this information, a variety of sensing technologies are currently under development. Obtaining this information via inter-vehicle communication can be thought of as one such sensing technique. However, the rapid changes in the driving environment due to the vehicle traveling at high speeds or heavy concentrations of vehicles brought on by congestion present problems to communications stability. To improve communication stability under these conditions, this paper presents a unique wireless communication protocol that adapts to the surrounding driving environment, which we call Collision Avoidance and Vehicular Information-exchange Anchored Relay (CAVIAR) protocol.
