A model for automatic collection and dynamic transmission of traffic information based on VANET

Abstract

As the existing traffic information system based on the fixed traffic information center needs high cost for construct, and the other traffic information system based on inter vehicle communication pays more attention to safe driving information but pays less attention to traffic congestion information, especially for the traffic congestion information in the road network. This paper studies and puts forward a pattern for automatic traffic information service which realizes the function of automatic collection and dynamic transmission of traffic information in the road network on the basis of VANET, and with no need for fixed traffic information center. According to this pattern, we build the models for automatic collecting, integrating and processing, transmitting of traffic information, and automatic generating and dynamic updating of traffic information which covers the whole road network. Finally, in this paper, we also carry out traffic simulation for these models, analyze and evaluate rationality of these models and transmission effect.
