Connected Vehicle Problems, Challenges, and Major Technologies

The objective of the project is to compare and evaluate existing and emerging VANET (vehicular ad-hoc network) technologies in connected vehicle environments, including, but not limited to, the architecture, routing protocols, and hardware of vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communications. During this project, the Performing Agency shall: (1) provide an up-to-date overview and comparison of existing and emerging VANET technologies and their applications; (2) identify technical challenges and potential solutions associated with the systems architecture, hardware and software in VANET deployments; (3) demonstrate secure V2I and V2V messaging via round trip timing and security-enhanced location sensors in a realistic attack scenario, this experiment will be undertaken in a laboratory setting; and (4) provide guidelines for V2I and V2V applications in Texas roadway settings and identify opportunities for data collection through Connected Vehicle (CV) systems.
