I-CROSS: Intersection Crossing Warning Application Based on V2V Communications

Abstract

I-CROSS is an intelligent system designed to help drivers to decide the time slot in which an intersection can be crossed without collisions. This service has been developed as a desktop application that can be executed in Android devices. The set of algorithms that determine the crossing order are fed with information about surrounding vehicles: actual and further GPS position, speed and an identification number. The interchange of this information relays in a IEEE 802.11p communications architecture, that is, in a VANET network created ad-hoc among the vehicles are close to the intersection. The reliability of the application depends on the probability that the vehicles would be able to share this information, so before testing I-CROSS, the communication link must be checked in different scenarios. In this paper the results of these tests are shown and a description of the I-CROSS is also included.
