A simulation approach of the internet of intelligent vehicles for closed routes in urban environments uri icon


  • © 2019 IEEE.In recent years, through the evolution of intelligent transport systems (ITS), there has been an increase in components to monitor different variables in the vehicles (such as driver monitoring, tire pressure, oil pressure, vehicle speed, acceleration, among others). Internet of Things (IoT) is enabling the collection of a variety of information of all types of components for monitoring the environment and systems. Also, as part of this evolution, the original concept of Vehicular Ad-hoc networks (VANETs) is being transformed into a new concept, the Internet of Vehicles (IoV), which involves Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communications, and other variations of these (V2X).In this paper, a review of the state of the art of the technologies and architectures generated around the Internet of the vehicles (IoV) is carried out and with this, an implementation of the simulation of intelligent vehicular communications through the IEEE 802.11p protocol and one of its applications. An algorithm for the generation of vehicular convoys to improve vehicle flow application through V2X communication is proposed and implemented in the simulation, and the communication quality is validated in a closed route in an urban environment during the simulations, omitting aspects of security in communications.
