Abstract

In dimly lit areas, we can't easily get the information out of line of sight, and drone quadcopters with video may not work well in such environment. This disclosure introduces a new approach to obtain out of line of sight information about something ahead of vehicle via peer-to-peer exchange information, and it does not require remote central server but instead works by forming group of peers, and exchange data via peer-to-peer way. Each vehicle act as smart agent, it can start request and form a peer group, or answer request, or broadcast request to others vehicle. This disclusure also could assist in finding parking outdoor vaguely defined parking areas when parking garage with red / green lights indicator would not work well.

Intelligent Near-range Peer-to-peer Exchange Of Information for Vehicles

Issue: How to obtaining out of line of sight information about something ahead of one 's vehicle.

Example: Allow one to discover something ahead of one's vehicle, via peer-to-peer exchange of information, that cannot be seen in line of sight. Examples, an open space for parking, or reason for traffic jam due to an accident.

Key Idea: Intelligent Near-range Peer-to-peer Exchange Of Information. This is new approach of enquiring information ahead of the vehicle but can not see in line of sight, the information is transferred via peer-to-peer exchange in near range. And vehicle who start request can form a group, and the other vehicle in near-range can join the group, and they can exchange information, if the farmost vehicle doesn't have a answer, it can form extend group and so more vehicle can join this group to exchange information, until the request get an answer and stop the conversation.

Description: As a driver you may want to enquire about something that is ahead of the vehicle that cannot be seen in line of sight; for example, a traffic jam caused by an accident or wanting to if an available open spot for parking was available or not. This inquiry would not be limited to drivers but may also include passengers of driver-less cars. The car could provide information to the passenger to let them know a traffic accident has happened and that the passenger can then act accordingly (perhaps postponing for a meeting that the passenger would be late to arrive at).
