Emergency vehicles, while usually equipped with warning devices, are still often impeded by other traffic and involved in numerous collisions. Current research is investigating the use of wireless communication from emergency vehicles to warn other traffic. However, communication in dynamic wireless networks is not reliable. In this paper, we propose a novel emergency vehicle early-warning system that relies on wireless technology to inform other vehicles of the arrival of emergency vehicles… Expand

The human factors associated with responding to emergency vehicles
Emergency vehicles undertake emergency driving, using lights and sirens, to move rapidly through traffic in response to situations where life and property are at risk. For the emergency driving to beExpand
On the use of service oriented architectures for intelligent vehicle research and development
This paper considers the use of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) as the basis of a system architecture for research and developmental efforts in intelligent vehicles to allow us to exploit this evolving environment. Expand
Leveraging MEC in a 5G System for Enhanced Back Situation Awareness
Back-Situation Awareness (BSA) application enabling early warning/notification to vehicles of an approaching emergency vehicle indicating its presence and the time it will arrive based on the ETSI C-ITS protocol messages is introduced. Expand
Exploiting space/time trade-offs in real-time mobile ad hoc networks
A new communication model that provides timely communication in a desired geographical area and a new real-time ad hoc routing protocol, the space-elastic adaptive routing (SEAR) protocol, that supports the space theelastic model are described. Expand
HAEP: Hospital Assignment for Emergency Patients in a Big City
A resource allocation to balance delay in sending patients to hospitals is proposed and an in-hospital waiting queue is developed to keep serious patients waiting locally, when it costs more to reach another available hospital. Expand
On Event-Based Middleware for Location-Aware Mobile Applications
A number of techniques including location-independent announcement and subscription coupled with location-dependent filtering and event delivery that can be used by event-based middleware to support location-aware mobile applications in which highly mobile components come together dynamically to collaborate at some location are presented.
