    Vehicular Delay-Tolerant Networks (VDTNs) is a breakthrough based DTN-based solution to provide vehicular communications under challenging scenarios characterized by long delays and sporadic connections. VDTN uses a store-carry-and-forward paradigm, inspirited from Delay Tolerant Networks, which allows forward bundles to asynchronously reach the destination hop by hop over traveling vehicles equip...

    In this paper, we characterize the delay profile of an Ethernet cross-traffic network statically loaded with one of the ITU-T network models and a larger Ethernet inline traffic loaded with uniformlysized packets, showing how the average time interval between consecutive minimum-delayed packets increases with increased network load. We compare three existing skew-estimation algorithms and show tha... View full abstract»

    In vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, reliable channel estimation is critical for the system performance due to the extremely time-varying characteristic of V2V channels. In this article, we present a survey on the current channel estimation techniques for the IEEE 802.11p standard. According to deficiencies of the current schemes and considering characteristics of V2V channels, we propose a... View full abstract»

    This article surveys a collection of representative congestion control approaches for the IEEE 802.11p vehicular network. Challenges remaining in the current literature are concluded. We then propose a novel distributed multi-priority congestion control method to maximize the transmission opportunities for the highest priority traffics while keeping the collision probability at a low level.

    Crash imminent braking (CIB) systems are equipped in high-end passenger vehicles by many auto manufactures. Due to the complex nature of the CIB technology, the features and performance of various CIB systems differ significantly. To date, there are no standards to evaluate and compare the comprehensive performance of different CIB systems. This paper describes a systematic methodology for the eva... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a set based approach is presented for safety verification and performance analysis of automated driving systems. As an example, reachability analysis technique is used to study the minimum required safe inter-vehicle distance for two given adaptive cruise controllers, a state feedback and a state feedback/feedforward controller designed based on mixed d H2/3 control.

    This paper focuses on stat ionary detect ion of the pedestrian's intention to enter the traffic lane at intersections. We use an Interacting Multiple Model Extended Kalman Filter (IMM-EKF) based tracking approach as basic method to recognize this. In addition, we propose a novel Motion Contour image based HOG-like descriptor (MCHOG) in combination with Support Vector Machine (SVM) classification t... View full abstract»

    During the last years so-called free-floating Car Sharing Systems became very popular. These systems in comparison to the conventional Car Sharing Systems allow short one-way trips. Today, the spatial distribution of vehicles within free-floating Car Sharing Systems is either self-organized, which means it is only dependent on the customer's demand or in a few cases the positioning is manually con...

    One of the major benefits of driving vehicles in controlled, close formations such as platoons is that of reduced air drag. However, this will set hard performance requirements on the system actuators, sensors and controllers of each vehicle. This paper analyses the effects of fundamental limitations on the longitudinal and lateral control performance of a platoon and the effects on following dist... View full abstract»

    A driver assistance system realizes that the driver is distracted and that a potentially hazardous situation is emerging. In this scenario the driver needs to make an optimal decision as fast as possible. His attention needs to be directed to the location that enhances the perception of all action relevant entities. But where is that optimal spot? Pedestrian detectability is a measure of the proba... View full abstract»
