A research paper on exploring the Basic Safety Messages transmitted between Connected Vehicles, by Mr. Jun Liu, a forth-year Ph.D student, working with Dr. Asad Khattak, has been accepted for a presentation at 2015 Intelligent Transportation Systems World Congress, Bordeaux, France, 2015. This research is to create an idea of providing drivers improved warning and control assistance information through the V2V (vehicle to vehicle) or V2I (vehicle to infrastructure) applications. The core technology is to construct appropriate thresholds for identifying extreme driving moments. Extending previous studies giving cut-off points or vary threshold lines, this study creates a threshold surface for the extreme driving idenfication, given the driving directions can be multi directional. More details are available from the authors.
