This two-volume set consists of two edited books: Autonomous Vehicles for Safer Driving (PT-158), published in April 2013, and V2V/V2I Communications for Improved Road Safety and Efficiency (PT-154), published in August 2012.
Both volumes include SAE-published documents that have been carefully selected and arranged by editor Ronald Jurgen to provide the reader with current information on these interrelated topics about the future of driving.
The papers in the autonomous vehicles volume bring the reader up to date on successful demonstrations of autonomous vehicles, ongoing projects, and what the future may hold for this technology. It is divided into three sections: overview, major design and test collaborations, and a sampling of autonomous vehicle research projects. The comprehensive overview paper covers the current state of autonomous vehicle research and development as well as obstacles to overcome and a possible roadmap for major new technology developments and collaborative relationships. The section on major design and test collaborations covers Sartre, DARPA contests, and the USDOT and the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership-Vehicle Safety Communications (CAMP-VSC2) Consortium. The final section presents significant research by individual companies on a variety of approaches to autonomous vehicles.
The V2V/V2I compendium explores the challenges in developing these systems and provides the latest developments in V2V/V2I technology. It begins with a series of overview news stories and articles from SAE’s magazines on the progress in this technology. This is followed by a series of technical papers on V2V/V2I dealing with the many technical aspects of design of these systems as well as discussions of such key issues as the need for extreme reliability assurances and traffic congestion overloads on the systems.
These books are also available via subscription on SAE’s Digital Library. Click here for details.
