Value Proposition: The invention will have a significant impact in reducing traffic accidents, which represent a leading contributor to human death and disability, and a major source of economic losses due to vehicle or property damage on a global scale.
Also it will be used for car manufacture for applications such as blind spot warning, lane change warning, dangerous road condition detection, automatic light beam control, etc.
Our smart vehicle communication system can be installed in multiple cars and RSUs. It can evaluate the proposed VANET architecture for supporting safety applications such as traffic light violation warning, cooperative adaptive cruise control, hazardous road condition detection, lane change warning, in-vehicle signage, and cooperative forward collision avoidance, which are currently of great interest for different car manufacturers, automotive suppliers, and government organizations.
The government initiatives around the world promoting for smart transportation systems, such as the proposed rulemaking by the NHSTA at the USDOT to begin implementing V2V technology, and the decision of the European Commission to implement a mandatory communication system, “eCall”, for emergency services in cars starting from 2015.
Our system will make the V2V communication more efficient for the smart transportation industry sector!
