  • Active Safety Vehicles Evolving Toward Automated Driving [Connected Vehicles]

    Towards autonomous vehicles Autonomous dump trucks Suncor Energy will try Komatsu's Autonomous Haulage System (AHS) in the mining industry in northern Canada. Each autonomous dump truck is equipped with vehicle controllers, a high-precision global positioning system (GPS), an obstacle detection system, and a wireless network system. These features allow the dump truck to safely operate though a complex load, haul, and dump cycle and to integrate with the dozers, loaders, and shovels that are also part of the autonomous system. Komatsu claims that AHS reduces the number of drivers working in hostile and remote conditions, increases safety on mine sites, reduces operating costs, increases productivity and efficiency, and reduces fuel consumption and emissions.

Then, we present the performance evaluation of a typical V2V VLC system with realistic automative light sources. Our evaluation takes into account the measured headlamp beam pattern and the impact of road reflected light. We demonstrate that depending on the photodetector (PD) position above the ground level, a data rate of 50 Mb/s can be achieved at 70 m.

  • Vehicular Communications: Survey and Challenges of Channel and Propagation Models

    Vehicular communication is characterized by a dynamic environment, high mobility, and comparatively low antenna heights on the communicating entities (vehicles and roadside units). These characteristics make vehicular propagation and channel modeling particularly challenging. In this article, we classify and describe the most relevant vehicular propagation and channel models, with a particular focus on the usability of the models for the evaluation of protocols and applications. We first classify the models based on the propagation mechanisms they employ and their implementation approach. We also classify the models based on the channel properties they implement and pay special attention to the usability of the models, including the complexity of implementation, scalability, and the input requirements (e.g., geographical data input). We also discuss the less-explored aspects in vehicular channel modeling, including modeling specific environments (e.g., tunnels, overpasses, and parking lots) and types of communicating vehicles (e.g., scooters and public transportation vehicles). We conclude by identifying the underresearched aspects of vehicular propagation and channel modeling that require further modeling and measurement studies.

  • Finding Lane Positions of Vehicles: Infrastructure-Less Cooperative Lane Positioning Based on Vehicular Sensor Networks

    In this article, we proposed an infrastructureless cooperative lane positioning (ICLP) framework using vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications. The ICLP framework applies vehicular sensor networks (VSNs) to localize lane positions of vehicles on roads. ICLP allows the vehicles equipped with image sensors to detect the current located lane without utilizing global positioning system (GPS) locations and roadside infrastructures. Through image sensors, ICLP can keep recognizing the lane position for a vehicle. In addition, ICLP can request lane position information from other vehicles in the same lane as necessary, based on V2V communications. ICLP makes innovative applications of intelligent transportation systems relying on accurate positioning possible, such as lane-level cooperative collision avoidance, dynamic traffic control, and intelligent personal navigation. An Android-based prototype is implemented to verify the feasibility and superiority of our framework. The experimental results show that ICLP can achieve high positioning success ratios and provide accurate lane positions for vehicles.

  • Relay by Smart Device: Innovative Communications for Efficient Information Sharing Among Vehicles and Pedestrians

    The combination of vehicles and mobile computers, such as smartphones and wearable devices, has provided many applications in our daily life. However, it is still limited to the applications in personal use. In fact, by utilizing the device-to-device technologies, which make use of the mobile device resources, vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P), vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), and pedestrian-to-pedestrian (P2P) communications can be more effective and convenient. In this article, we present a concept of relay by smart device that aims at information dissemination by smart communication devices, which can contribute to efficient information sharing among vehicles and pedestrians. We propose a novel technique for effectively forming and disbanding the groups of vehicles and pedestrians for their communications. The proposed mechanism is based on three criteria, namely, the stability of the group, the activity of the group, and the qualification as a group leader. Procedures for group forming and disbanding are introduced. We develop a prototype as a smartphone application using Wi-Fi technology, referred to as the second generation of relay by smartphone, which is the smartphone type of relay by smart device. The results of the field experiment show that the proposed group-based information sharing technology has a good potential to be utilized in V2P, V2V, and P2P communications.

  • Multi-UAV-Aided Networks: Aerial-Ground Cooperative Vehicular Networking Architecture

    In this article, an aerial-ground cooperative vehicular networking architecture is proposed. Multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), forming an aerial subnetwork, aid the ground vehicular subnetwork through air-to-air (A2A) and air-to-ground (A2G) communications. UAVs can be dispatched to areas of interest to collect information, and transmit it to ground vehicles. Moreover, UAVs can act as intermediate relays due to their flexible mobility when network partitions happen in the ground vehicular subnetwork. With the assistance of UAVs, the twolayer cooperative networking can facilitate applications such as disaster rescue and polluted area investigation. Potential research issues and challenges in multi-UAV-aided vehicular networks are presented and discussed, which can shed light on extending the applications of vehicular networks in an extreme environment.

  • The Key to Intelligent Transportation: Identity and Credential Management in Vehicular Communication Systems

    Vehicular communication (VC) systems will greatly enhance intelligent transportation systems. But their security and the protection of their users' privacy are a prerequisite for deployment. Efforts in industry and academia brought forth a multitude of diverse proposals. These have now converged to a common view, notably on the design of a security infrastructure, a vehicular public-key infrastructure (VPKI) that shall enable secure conditionally anonymous VC. Standardization efforts and industry readiness to adopt this approach hint at its maturity. However, there are several open questions remaining, and it is paramount to have conclusive answers before deployment. In this article, we distill and critically survey the state of the art for identity and credential management in VC systems, and we sketch a road map for addressing a set of critical remaining security and privacy challenges.

  • GlidePath: Eco-Friendly Automated Approach and Departure at Signalized Intersections

    Recently, there has been significant research on environment-focused connected vehicle (CV) applications that involve determining optimal speed profiles for vehicles traveling through signalized intersections and conveying this information to drivers via driver-vehicle interfaces (DVI's). However, findings from previous studies indicate that drivers may not be able to precisely follow the recommended speed profiles, resulting in degraded effectiveness of the applications. Moreover, the DVI could be distracting, which may compromise safety. As an alternative, partial automation can play an important role in ensuring that the benefits of these CV applications are fully realized. In this study, a partially automated vehicle system with an eco-approach and departure feature (called the GlidePath Prototype), which can receive dedicated short range communication message sets from the intersection and automatically follow recommended speed profiles, was developed, demonstrated, and evaluated. The results revealed that compared to manually following the recommended speed profiles, the GlidePath Prototype reduced fuel consumption by 17% on average. In some cases, the fuel savings are greater than 40% while the travel time is shortened by up to 64%. Furthermore, the system potentially improved the driving comfort since it would smooth out the speed profiles.

  • Special Issue on Connected Vehicles [Guest Editorial]

    The articles in this special section focus on the development of connected intelligent vehicles. Connected vehicle technology will lead to the creation of millions of ad hoc networks in the road transportation network leading to collision avoidance systems being deployed, improvement of traffic flow, and ultimately leading to self-driving vehicles. The ability of vehicles to share and communicate information with each other and their surroundings in real time, is the key technology that will allow these new innovations. The whole idea of sitting on a desk in your car working and sipping wine is very appealing but there are many of challenges to be addressed such as security, privacy, technology gaps, infrastructure development, economic consequences, social challenges, disruption to urban planning, and revisions to existing laws.
