Prof. Gruteser has been awarded a contract to develop a Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Scalability Simulator for the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership Vehicle Safety Communications 3 consortium, which is comprised of many of the world's major car makers, under USDOT's connected vehicle technology research program. The project will use field test data from hundreds of DSRC equipped vehicles to develop and calibrate simulation models so that the simulator can attempt to accurately predict V2V communication performance in very dense, interference-limited scenarios. Ultimately, DSRC radio technology is expected to lead to the next generation of car safety and efficiency technologies.
