GPS-based collision avoidance for moving vehicles : algorithm, implementation and testing
MetadataShow full item record
The high incidence of traffic accidents propels our concerns on collision avoidance for mobile vehicles, particularly for marine vehicles. In this project, on the one hand, we investigate an up-to-date algorithm for predicting the location of mobile vehicles. We evaluate the performance of accuracy of the studied algorithms while taking consideration to apply it on collision avoidance. On the other hand, we design and implement a prototype based on Android platform. The prototype provides Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications to share the GPS information, and provides the measurement of the distance between vehicles in order to avoid collisions. In addition, we survey on the real life maritime devices, and design a structure to extend our prototype into the marine devices.
