Abstract

Monitoring the network traffic status of urban roads in real-time can provide rich and highquality basic data and allow the assessment of traffic control effects. Our work focuses on the use of Visible Light Communication (VLC) as a support for transmission of information providing guidance to drivers, as well as specific information to them. Connected vehicles communicate with one another and with the infrastructure using street lights, street lamps, and traffic signals. As a result of joint transmission, optical mobile receivers collect data, calculate their location for positioning, and, correspondingly, read transmitted data from each transmitter. As receivers and decoders, optical sensors with light filtering properties, are used. To command the passage of vehicles safely queue/request/response mechanisms and temporal/space relative pose concepts are used. The results indicate that the V-VLC system increases safety by directly monitoring critical points such as queue formation and dissipation, relative speed thresholds, as well as inter-vehicle spacing.
