Highway test of V2V mesh communications over WSN


Wireless vehicular communications are one of the most important technologies in the ITS field to improve the transport safety as well efficiency impact. Several standards definitions, hardware developments, research projects, use cases definitions and field operational tests are currently under deployment in order to accelerate the market availability of this technology. Nevertheless, though the possible applications of vehicular communications are defined, there is a lack of availability of completely functional communication technology to support these applications. In this paper we present the results of a V2V communications field operational test using Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) as nodes of the VANET and three vehicles that circulate on public highways in free flow traffic situations. These results show that this communications technology is able to support continuous mesh data transmission with enough features of efficiency and reliability to be used as main data source in a big set of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
