Title: CONTROLLING VEHICLE-TO-VEHICLE COMMUNICATION USING A DISTRIBUTION SCHEME
Abstract:
A method, a node, an entity and a computer program for controlling vehicle-to-vehicle communication is described. The vehicle-to-vehicle communication is performable using a first radio technology for performing the vehicle-to-vehicle communication and a second radio technology for accessing a cellular network. The method comprises determining (234) a distribution scheme for distributing a transmission of vehicle-to-vehicle communication messages among the first radio technology and the second radio technology, and, in accordance with the determined distribution scheme, a vehicle-to- vehicle communication device (116a, 116b) controlling (238, 240) the transmission of the vehicle-to-vehicle communication messages. Therefore the vehicle-to-vehicle communication can be easily and efficiently controlled and the accordingly controlled vehicle-to-vehicle communication can be performed in an easy, efficient, cost-effective and reliable way.
