Abstract:The application of Driver Support Systems (DSS) is an emerging trend in the automotive industry. Advances in technology enable faster, smaller and more versatile hard- and software systems while consumers demand safer and more e�cient cars. A DSS aims to meet the consumer's demand with technologically feasible solutions. The Ph.D. Thesis \Driver Support in Congestion" by C.J.G. van Driel proposes a suite of Driver Support Systems called the Congestion Assistant. The Congestion Assistant functions by means of over-the-horizon awareness to aid the driver in traversing traffic congestion on highways. Subsystems are proposed to aid the driver and supply the driver with information. The Congestion Assistant has been tested at a functional level, but an information dissemination system was not presented in the study. In the design information was assumed to be instantaneously and reliably available. A DSS, which relies on over-the-horizon awareness in a mobile environment, poses some interesting demands on the communication system designed to distribute this information. For instance, latency must be minimal in order to guarantee freshness of information, even if it has travelled several kilometers along the road. This thesis covers the design of a communication system aimed to provide the over-thehorizon awareness to the Congestion Assistant.
