Abstract

The project aims at providing the basis for future standardisation in the area of vehicle-to-vehicle communication (VVC), to meet DRIVE task T504 requirements. Functional analysis identifies five applications needing VVC: intelligent cruise control, intelligent manoeuvring control, intelligent intersection control, medium-range pre-information, and emergency warning. Almost all communication can be made in broadcast mode. The problem of variable network topology is studied, on the basis of available radio channel characteristics. Methods and tools are defined, allowing formal validation of the protocols, and field tests prepared. A proposal for an integrated communication architecture has resulted from integration work done in liaison with SECFO.
