The proposed project is working on further advancing and refining a small electronic device with wireless capabilities. These units are meant to meet regulations of the United States Sign Council (USSC) motorist reaction distance for visual street cues to facilitate safe vehicle responses. Satisfying this requirement involves SinWaves to develop a communication protocol structured around efficient message transmission to quickly detect and respond to moving vehicles while using minimal energy. The projects communication protocol is designed to use minimal power while maximizing the amount of data transferred. Software and hardware are optimized to achieve 5-8 year battery life while meeting the required transmission distances set by USSC. Because roadside infrastructure is standardized there is an opportunity for advanced data management techniques to simplify data transmission and decoding. The proposed system integrates and enhances the current vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication platform by offering another layer of physical object identification. As vehicles take on autonomous responsibilities, they’ll need reliable, accurate, and authenticatable information about their surroundings with enough notice to facilitate safe responses.
