Management of Autonomous Vehicle Communications over Heterogeneous Wireless Networks

The new generation of autonomous vehicles (AVs) is expected to support vehicle communication over heterogeneous wireless networks; however, vehicle-to-vehicle communication over such networks involves delays that can cause an increase in road traffic congestion. Therefore, it is important that these networks provide quality of service (QoS)-guarantees. QoS-availability varies from network to network. Also, QoS may vary over time on the same system, due to the need for each vehicle to share resources with a varying number of other vehicles. These fluctuations in QoS increase road traffic congestion due to interruptions in the communication between AVs. To overcome these fluctuations, a goal oriented agent that operates autonomously is proposed, Its autonomy increases the agent's flexibility in dealing with non-regular wireless networks and new situations involving traffic loads and decreases the information load on the network. This strengthens the robustness of the network as a whole, distributes information, and allows for negotiation when conflicts occur. Furthermore, the goal oriented agent plays a major role in the ability of the next generation of AVs to overcome the heterogeneity of wireless networks and differences between the attributes of current generation operating systems and NextG.
