Title: Assay of White Space Technology Standards for Vehicular Cognitive Access
Author(s): Muhammad Dawood, Woldemar Fuhrmann, Bogdan V Ghita
Reference: pp23-33
Keywords: White space standards, vehicular communications, automotive applications
Abstract: The provisioning of innovative connections between vehicles and backend information systems will enable new ways of vehicle management, traffic safety and efficiency. In this article we present Vehicular Cognitive Access, the concept of using TV white space access technology to support and facilitate end-to-end connectivity for certain types of automotive applications. We defined common requirements that an optimized radio system is expected to fulfill. An overview of different TV white space access standards is presented; motivations and open challenges of these standards as enabling technologies for vehicular communications are analyzed. It also provides an evaluation of the overall suitability of TV white space access for these applications and discusses research directions. TV white space access standards do show significant potential for vehicular cognitive access. However, some issues such as seamless handover schemes for high speed vehicles and the capability to support applications that have strict timeline and reliability requirements need to be further optimized before its full potential can be realized.
