Local Peer Group Based Emergency Brake Information Distribution Lab Demonstration

As part of adaptive cruise control system, electronic brake control can decrease the risk of collision accidents with faster response and more powerful brake application than that possible by drivers’ ability alone. To make it more effective, this capability must be enhanced with information sharing among adjacent vehicles over wireless communication. We have developed a dynamic vehicular network platform called “Local Peer Group (LPG) Communication” which is a cross-layer protocol suite that maintains the vehicular wireless media and networks based on group formation and maintenance. In this paper, we introduce simulation results for emergency brake information distribution over LPG in comparison to that of flooding and show the potential of LPG for preventing collisions.
