Enhance Safety and Road Transport Via V2v Communication

This paper presents information about the usefulness of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications as one approach to meeting the growing demand for timely and complete traffic information. The authors note that most of the traffic data is currently provided by static sensors like magnetic loops on motorways and arterial roads. The paper describes COM2REACT (http://www.com2react-project.org/) which establishes a multi-level, scalable cooperative system involving two-way V2V and Vehicle to Center (V2C) communications. A key feature of COM2REACT is a virtual traffic control sub-center, which controls a moving group of vehicles that are in close proximity. The Virtual Sub-Center (VSC) processes data acquired locally by the vehicles via the V2V communication system and rapidly provides information related to local traffic and safety situations. It also transmits, by means of V2C communication, selected data to the Regional Control Center (RCC), and receives in return, instructions to distribute to the vehicles. The COM2REACT (C2R) project is sponsored by the Europe Commission, and consists of thirteen partners: Motorola, ARTTIC, Transver, Technical University of Munich, INRIA, ARMINES-Ecole des Mines, Everis, Intempora, Telefonica, Sphericon, PSA Peugeot Citroen, NAVTEQ and Jerusalem Transportation.
