Enhancing the Field of View Limitation of Visible Light Communication-based Platoon

Abstract : Visible Light Communication (VLC) technology have recently been suggested as efficient supportive technology for platooning applications over short inter vehicle distances. Though, ensuring the continuity of Line-of-Sight (LOS) of any optical-based applications is one of the most complex scenarios for an autonomous vehicle control, and still remains as an open challenge for Intelligent Transformation Systems (ITS). Exchanging information about the relative directional position of each member of the platoon, together with front and rear facing directions of each vehicle, can be very useful data for building a smooth geometrical-based compensation method, which results in ensuring that any increase in both incidence and irradiance optical angles will never exceed the Field of View (FOV) limitations and regardless of the trajectory shape. This paper propose a tracking alike compensation method of four vehicles equipped with positioning and VLC systems. We have simulated different scenarios related to different trajectories and compensation angles limits. The simulation results show that trajectories influence on the optical incidence and irradiance angles can be compensated efficiently and without deploying any tracking method.
