Abstract: Vehicular communications can be used for safety-related services by converging information and communication technology (ICT) with vehicles. In this paper, we consider pedestrian-to-vehicle (P2V) communication-based safety message transmission for the elderly. We focus on the conflict area that represents the unsigned area on the road, i.e., a single road and intersection area. Service scenarios for safety message transmission and the overall system architecture are introduced at first. Then, the overview of the communication and location information technologies for the services is introduced. After considering implementation issues for the suggested scenarios, we suggest an appropriate communication technology for P2V communication.
Keywords: P2V; pedestrian-to-vehicle communication; vehicular communications; elderly pedestrians; conflict areas; safety messages; old people; ICT.
