Internet of cars through commodity V2V and V2X mobile routers: Applications for developing countries
- 294 Downloads
In developing countries, government agencies focus its transportation system developments on building more roads and bridge structures to alleviate the traffic, undermining the idea of using Intelligent Transportation Systems to maximize the capacity of existing infrastructure. When the public sectors perform poorly in managing traffic, a decentralized traffic management approach seems to be more appropriate. The vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-any communication systems are among the top choices in the decentralized system. Despite the potential benefits of V2V and V2X communication applications, there are many challenges in implementing them in developing countries. We identified the obstacles in various aspects and then designed the system within the framework of such constraints. Also, we envisioned the deployment of small, commercially available off-the-shelf routers which rely on open Internet standards, and used one or more unlicensed frequencies followed by setting a simple experiment up. We have successfully demonstrated that V2V mobile routers can be built from commodity components which are available in developing countries without depending on regulated radio frequencies hence achieving the freedom to use these V2V mobile routers almost everywhere. Since smart devices such as Smartphones and tablets can connect to the proposed mobile routers, there are endless possibilities to develop useful applications.
