Abstract

Regarding conventional driving scenarios, vehicles are isolated and self-secured without interaction although many vehicles may exist in a surrounding. Driving safety is thus secured by individual driving behavior; that says, drivers must take care of themselves. Whereas many technologies contribute to the rapid development of vehicular networking and applications, it can lead to better quality of driving experience. This paper proposes a system and method for inter-vehicle media content distribution for driving safety. The system aims to expand the range of a drivers’ vision by sharing front-end views of neighbor vehicles on the road. In this system, we use the Wi-Fi facility to establish an inter-vehicle communication network, use the UPnP protocol to manage vehicles, and then use RTSP to deliver real-time video to other vehicles in a network. Thus, drivers can catch a broad view through the sharing services of front views. In addition, this system provides functions to record images, road features and geographical information, and then to transfer them onto a back-end database. The system will be able to notify traffic accidents and situations on the warming map, so the drivers can browse the information to recognize what happens in front of them before approaching to the area. Accordingly, we design a system architecture, develop a software prototype, and demonstrate practical scenarios.
