Visible Light and Radio Communication for Cooperative Autonomous Driving: applied to vehicle convoy

Abstract : By realizing both low-cost implementation and dual functionality, VLC has become an outstanding intriguing supportive technology by using the vehicular existed infrastructure. This thesis aims to contribute to the autonomous vehicular communication and urban mobility improvements. The work addresses the main radio-based V2V communication limitations and challenges for ITS hard-safety applications and intends to deploy the vehicular lighting system as a supportive communication solution for platooning of IVCenabled autonomous vehicles. The ultimate objectives of this Ph.D. research are to integrate the VLC system within the existing C-ITS architecture by developing a VLC prototype, together with sufficient hand-over algorithms enabling VLC, RF, and perception-based solutions in order to ensure the maximum safety requirements and the continuous information exchange between vehicles. The feasibility and efficiency of the system implementation and hand-over algorithms were subjects to deep investigations using computer simulators and test-bed that considers applications of automated driving. In addition to the improvement in road capacity when platoon formations are used. The carried out simulations followed-up by experimental results proved that the integration of VLC with the existed RF solutions lead to a definite benefit in the communication channel quality and safety requirements of a platooning system when a proper hand-over algorithm is used.
