A Traffic Chaos Reduction Approach for Emergency Scenarios
This paper proposes an efficient chaos-reducing information dissemination approach for spatiotemporal traffic information related to first responders and planned evacuation scenarios using Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). VANETs have recently been proposed as one of the promising ad-hoc networking techniques that can be used to provide a safe and enjoyable driving experience. In our approach, we provide an emergency vehicle path clearing technique, and real-time resource (e.g. shelter) availability information. Therefore, traffic confusion and chaos is lowered on evacuation and emergency vehicle routes. Simulation results show that our approach works efficiently without fully relying on any message relaying infrastructure.
