Autonomous Vehicle Communication and Safety Network
As autonomous vehicles (AVs) become more prevalent in everyday use, a unique need for improved safety has presented itself. Currently, a multitude of sensors are attached to AVs in order to safely guide themselves along the road. However, these sensors are still restricted to their immediate vicinity and their use is impeded when obstructions are present. This MSU technology allows for vital information to be distributed among a network of nearby vehicles so that they may internally integrate the information and take the appropriate action.
Description of Technology
By utilizing common communication methods (Wi-Fi, 3G, 5G LTE, etc.) critical sensor information is broadcasted from vehicles and buildings. This information may then be integrated and provided to the driver in the form of a Heads-Up Display (HUD), audio signals, visual signals, or a combination thereof. In autonomous travel, this may also cause the vehicle to respond to the provided information. Furthermore, non-emergency information may be communicated as well for improved GPS re-routing, rapid traffic alerts, and other navigational information.
