Title

A Management of Highway Emergency Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication

Abstract

This paper presents a new protocol and algorithms to manage vehicle emergency situation on highway. The focus is given on how to detect false alarm messages from the vehicles that are not in an effective radius from the accident of concern. This problem is investigated by using a new technique, referred to as Location Counter on Neighborhood Table. The technique facilitates the process of keeping track of the location of other vehicles in an effective radius on top of the vehicle-to-vehicle communication protocol. The cost for the Neighborhood Table is maintained low in a matter of the number of vehicles in the effective radius; and the algorithms by using the Location Counter is kept simple in order to effectively manage emergency highway situations in timely manner. An example is provided to demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness.
