With radar, even the humblest compact car will see through fog, brake on its own, and track other vehicles hundreds of meters ahead. Today's systems can dramatically reduce your risk of rear-ending someone else's car, and when most cars have such radars, they will also be much less likely to rear-end you. Once every vehicle on the road is able to sense and avoid others, there'll be no reason why they won't be able to negotiate tailing distances among themselves. Eventually, they might even be… Expand
Externalities of road traffic include congestion, accidents, conception of scare space. One of the measures to control these externalities are by Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). Clutter isExpand
Rear lights vehicle detection for collision avoidance
An automated algorithm for detection of preceding vehicles is proposed, based on the detection of rear vehicle lights, which combines color and radial symmetry cues while the threshold is dynamically adapted. Expand

Adaptive Scheduling in Intelligent Transportation Systems
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can substantially improve roadsafety and trac eciency. This is possible by allowing communicationamong nearby vehicles and among vehicles and xed roadsideExpand
OFDM Radar Algorithms in Mobile Communication Networks
OfDM-based radar has been suggested several times independently in the last decade, but many important questions remain unanswered, so one solution is to use OFDM waveforms, which nowadays are commonly used in communications standards already. Expand
Mobile Edge Computing-Based Vehicular Cloud of Cooperative Adaptive Driving for Platooning Autonomous Self Driving
