Numerous applications of car-to-car communication (C2C) are currently believed to have great potential to improve traffic safety, comfort and throughput. However, the effects that are hoped for, have not yet been clearly analyzed. This article describes our work to quantify the possible benefits of car-to-car communication. The means we are using is a combined traffic and network simulation environment where driver information received via C2C communication has an effect on route decisions. We… CONTINUE READING
