Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR COORDINATING VEHICULAR TRAFFIC USING IN-VEHICLE VIRTUAL TRAFFIC CONTROL SIGNALS ENABLED BY VEHICLE-TO-VEHICLE COMMUNICATIONS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES PERMETTANT DE COORDONNER LE TRAFIC DE VÉHICULES EN UTILISANT DES SIGNAUX DE COMMANDE DE TRAFIC VIRTUEL ACTIVÉS DANS LES VÉHICULES PAR DES COMMUNICATIONS ENTRE VÉHICULES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Systems, methods, software, and apparatuses for coordinating traffic proximate to a potential conflict zone, such as a roadway intersection, where travel conflicts, such as crossing traffic, can arise. Coordination involves forming an ad-hoc network in a region containing the conflict zone using, for example, vehicle-to-vehicle communications and developing a dynamic traffic control plan based on information about vehicles approaching the conflict zone. Instructions based on the dynamic traffic control plan are communicated to devices aboard vehicles in the ad-hoc network, which display one or more virtual traffic signals to the operators of the vehicles and/or control the vehicles in accordance with the dynamic traffic control plan.
(FR)L'invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés, un logiciel et des appareils permettant de coordonner le trafic à proximité d'une zone de conflit potentiel, par exemple à une intersection de routes où des conflits de circulation de type croisement du trafic risquent de se produire. La coordination consiste à former un réseau ad hoc dans une région contenant la zone de conflit en utilisant par exemple des communications entre véhicules, et à développer un plan de contrôle dynamique du trafic basé sur les informations relatives aux véhicules approchant de la zone de conflit. Des instructions basées sur le plan de contrôle dynamique du trafic sont communiquées aux dispositifs embarqués des véhicules dans le réseau ad hoc, lesquels affichent un ou plusieurs signaux de trafic virtuel aux utilisateurs des véhicules et/ou commandent les véhicules en fonction du plan de contrôle dynamique du trafic.
