An Embedded System Dedicated to Intervehicle Communication Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

To overcome system latency and network delay is essential for InterVehicle Communication (IVC) applications such as hazard alarming and cooperative driving. This paper proposes a low-cost embedded software system dedicated to such applications. It consists of two basic component layers: an operating system, named HEROS (hybrid event-driven and real-time multitasking operating system), and a communication protocol, named CIVIC (Communication Inter Vehicule Intelligente et Cooperative). HEROS is originally designed for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). It contains a component-based resource-aware kernel and a low-latency tuple-based communication system.
