An Assessment on the Use of Stationary Vehicles as a Support to Cooperative Positioning

  title={An Assessment on the Use of Stationary Vehicles as a Support to Cooperative Positioning},
  author={Rodrigo H. Ord{\'o}{\~n}ez-Hurtado and Emanuele Crisostomi and Wynita M. Griggs and R. Shorten},
In this paper, we consider the use of stationary vehicles as tools to enhance the localisation capabilities of moving vehicles in a VANET. We examine the idea in terms of its potential benefits, technical requirements, algorithmic design and experimental evaluation. Simulation results are given to illustrate the efficacy of the technique. Rodrigo H. Ordonez-Hurtado, Emanuele Crisostomi, Wynita M. Griggs and Robert N. Shorten 
Autonomous Car Parking System through a Cooperative Vehicular Positioning Network
This work designs a new smart parking system on top of a VSN that takes into account the heterogeneity of cars and provides guidance to the best parking place for the autonomous car based on a collaborative approach.

IVC in Cities: Signal Attenuation by Buildings and How Parked Cars Can Improve the Situation
This work is the first to propose the utilization of parked vehicles as relay nodes for safety applications in vehicular networks, and results clearly indicate that situation awareness can be significantly improved.

Results show that the two conflicting objectives of improving spectrum utilization and not penalizing safety messages can be successfully met, provided that the transmission power on the adjacent channel is adequately tuned and the stopped vehicle is at a sufficient distance from the vehicle that is using the CCH.
Governing energy for parked cars
This paper proposes an energy management framework that governs the energy provisioning of a service and guarantees the most effective energy utilization for the system, requiring minimum effort from the service designers to attach to the system.
Parked cars as a service delivery platform
A new view of parked cars as a massive, flexible resource that is currently wasted is introduced and diverse applications that can be implemented using parked cars are described to show the flexibility of the infrastructure.
Content downloading in vehicular networks: Bringing parked cars into the picture
Investigation of the possibility of exploiting parked vehicles to extend the RSU service coverage finds that the use of parked vehicles enhances the benefits of the content downloading process and leads to a significant offload of the RSUs, with respect to the case where only mobile relays are used.
Impact of the radio channel modelling on the performance of VANET communication protocols
It is critical that realistic and accurate channel models are employed to adequately understand, design and optimize novel vehicular communications and networking protocols.
The sharing at roadside: Vehicular content distribution using parked vehicles
This paper investigates the idea of ParkCast, which doesn't need investment, but leverages roadside parking to distribute contents in urban VANETs, and achieves high performance in distribution of contents with different sizes, especially in sparse traffic conditions.
