Abstract

This paper describes the idea of dynamically adjusting traffic patterns using the information from a wireless Vehicle Collision Avoidance System (VCAS). The improvement is based on the ability of wireless-based VCAS-enabled vehicles to transmit their current location, direction, and speed. The traffic light system would use this information to adjust timing of traffic lights to increase traffic throughput and to provide better support for passage of emergency vehicles.
