Designing a Decentralized Traffic Information System - AutoNomos

Axel Wegener, Horst Hellbrück, Stefan Fischer, Björn Hendriks, Christiane Schmidt, Sándor P. Fekete


We propose a decentralized traffic information system-AutoNomos-that is based on a thorough investigation of the properties of traffic and recommends a hierarchical data aggregation and forwarding for providing individualized information and support to road users. Our approach differs from work in the field by consequently applying local rules and local decentralized data processing, which turns out to be a key property of robust and scalable computing systems. We present a flexible VANET middleware that assists the application development by providing generic functionality for traffic applications. We discuss the architectural design of the overall system and provide solutions of important design concepts demonstrating the innovation of the approach.
