Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Communications Training

Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications systems, once fully deployed, could reduce accidents caused by human error by up to 70-80%, and can have a massive impact on congestion and carbon emissions.

About 1 million vehicles currently have some form of V2V communications. Reports estimate that around 60% of new vehicles (more than 62 million vehicles) will have V2V capability by 2023.

Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) technologies open the door for vehicles to share information and interact with each other, as well as with the emerging smart infrastructure. These systems promise not only to make transportation safer and to reduce the environmental impact of automobiles, but also to reduce traffic congestion.

V2V is a communication technology that facilitates crash avoidance. It uses VANETs (vehicular ad hoc networks), which consists of a wireless network whereby vehicles can communicate with one another and share information about their driving behaviors.

The information includes speed, position, braking, stability, the direction of travel, among others. The importance of this technology is to improve the safety of the roads by providing incident alerts before a driver sees or detects them.

V2V communication enables vehicles to transmit data over a wireless mesh network to send, receive, and retransmit signals. A wireless mesh network is one that relies on all nodes to propagate signals. These nodes are crucial because they can collect traffic conditions several miles ahead of a driver which is sufficient time for even the unhinged drivers to manage their drives.

A V2V system is generally composed of several primary elements, such as:

  • Inertial navigation system: Acts as the vehicle’s orientation system, helping each car navigate safely around cars and objects. The inertial navigation system monitors and estimates positioning, speed, and direction of vehicles with onboard sensors.
  • Laser Illuminated Detection And Ranging (LiDAR): A laser detection system that Creates 3D maps and heat images of the vehicle’s surroundings. LiDAR calculates the exact distance between objects by measuring the speed of light as it bounces from vehicle to object and vice versa. It helps the vehicle orient with the objects around it and interact with infrastructure sensors.
  • Dedicated short range communications (DSRC): Wireless communication channels that work in the 5.9GHz band with a bandwidth of 75MHz, designed for short-range use of about 1000m. The DSCR enables real-time communication between the V2V system and the vehicle to infrastructure system. When the V2V system communicates, it may say, “Ambulance approaching.” However, the V2I system would say something like  “Road closed in 200 feet — accident.”
  • GPS receiver: Provides the vehicle with real-time location information, which helps vehicles navigate around objects and vehicles on the road.
