Abstract:

Side-sweep accidents are one of the major causes of loss of life and property damage on highways. This type of accidents is caused by a driver initiating a lane change while another vehicle is blocking the road on the target lane. In this article we are trying to quantify the degree to which different implementations of vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communication could reduce the occurrence of such accidents. We present the design of a simulator that takes into account common sources of lack of driver awareness such as blind-spots and lack of attention. Then, we study the impact of both traditional, non-technological communication means such as turning signals as well as unidirectional and bidirectional V2V communications.
