„From Vehicular Communication to Vehicular Cooperation“

Zoom Meeting

Communication between vehicles and potentially other traffic participants came up as a research topic already many years ago. It has also been considered for long time as a base to enable cooperation between vehicles, but with somehow slower progress than just for communication techniques. Cooperation in traffic scenarios should be based on information about the surroundings of the cooperation partners. Hence, information about the current situation consisting of the own perception is needed, but could be extended substantially by according information from others, leading to collective perception. Yet, to enable cooperation, more is needed, i.e., information about the intentions of others such as currently planned trajectories as well as potentially desired trajectories.
This talk will discuss challenges and approaches towards vehicular cooperation.
