Several automobile manufacturers are offering assisted driving systems that use sensors to automatically brake automobiles to avoid collisions. Before extensively deploying these systems, we should determine how they will affect highway capacity. The goal of this paper is to compare the highway capacity when using sensors alone and when using sensors and vehicle-to-vehicle communication. To achieve this goal, the rules for using both technologies to prevent collisions are proposed, and highway… CONTINUE READING
