The feasibility of obstacle awareness forwarding scheme in a visible light communication vehicular network

Lisa Kristiana, Arsyad Ramadhan Darlis, Irma Amelia Dewi


A vehicular-to-vehicular (V2V) communication is a part of a vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) that emerges recently due to the heavy traffic environment. V2V is a frequently changing network since it implements vehicles as mobile nodes. The challenges in implementing V2V are the relatively short duration of possible communication and the uneven city environment caused by high rise buildings or other objects that distract
the signal transmission. The limited transmitting duration between vehicles requires efficient coordination and communication. This work focuses on the utility of visible light communication in vehicular network (VLC-VN) in data transmitting and the obstacle awareness in the forwarding scheme based on our knowledge in previous researches. The result of evaluating the feasibility of VLC-VN forwarding in a freeway environment the transmission delay is lower than 1 second in 500 byte data transmission, however it reaches to only about 4% in throughput as a drawback.
