A Survey of Communications for Intelligent Transportation Systems.- Quality of Service Provisioning in Wireless Vehicular Networks: Challenges and Mechanisms.- Message dissemination in VANET: protocols and performances.- Rear End Collision: Causes and Avoidance Techniques.- Chain Collision Accident: Causes and Avoidance Techniques.- Lane Change and Overtaking Collisions: Causes and Avoidance Techniques.- Intersection Collision: Causes and Avoidance Techniques.- Cars and Pedestrians Collision: Causes and Avoidance Techniques.
Wireless Vehicular Networks for Car Collision Avoidance focuses on the development of the ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) in order to minimize vehicular accidents. The book presents and analyses a range of concrete accident scenarios while examining the causes of vehicular collision and proposing countermeasures based on wireless vehicular networks.The book also describes the vehicular network standards and quality of service mechanisms focusing on improving critical dissemination of safety information. With recommendations on techniques and protocols to consider when improving road safety policies in order to minimize crashes and collision risks.
Presents the vehicular wireless technology required in order to interconnect vehicles to an intelligent cooperative communicating infrastructure
Demonstrates how wireless technology in cars can avoid vehicular accidents by providing active roadway safety
Covers concrete accident scenarios and provides countermeasures based on wireless networks
