The parking guidance system can increase driver's convenience with detailed parking information service, but it continuously consumes electrical energy with large amount of sensors, displays and control modules. With the increase of the demand for green and sustainable building design, it becomes a meaningful issue for parking guidance system to reduce operating power. This paper presents the preliminary design and estimated results of a parking guidance system which is optimized to reduce the power consumption mainly on detectors and displays. The system design is based on commercial wireless parking detectors, wireless-loop-detector and earth-magnetic-detector. We have performed system architecture design, communication network design, parking information service scenario planning, battery life regulation and at last operating power estimation. With the 7 years of battery replace cycle, the estimated result for power consumption of designed system was 0.33W/slot, which is 13% of the traditional system's estimation result. The estimated annual maintain cost was similar to the traditional ultrasonic sensor based system's. The low power operable designed system can be expected to reduce CO2 emission.

The vehicle electronic control system is being developed as the legal and social demand for ensuring driver's safety is rising. The various Driver Assistance Systems with various sensors such as radars, camera, and lasers are in practical use because of the falling price of hardware and the high performance of sensor and processer. In the preceding study of this research, the program was developed to recognize the experiment vehicle's driving lane and the cars nearby or approaching the experiment vehicle throughout the images taken by CCD camera. In addition, the 'dangerous driving analysis program' which is Vision System basis was developed to analyze the cause and consequence of dangerous driving. However, the Vision system developed in the previous studyhad poor recognition rate of lane and vehicles at the time of passing a tunnel, sunrise, or sunset. Therefore, through mounting the brightness response algorithm to the Vision System, the present study is aimed to analyze the causes of driver's dangerous driving clearly by improving the recognition rate of lane and vehicle, regardless of when and where it is.

Traffic volume increases due to diversification of industry. Also, Automobile ownerships also increase steadily. It is estimated that the registered number of vehicle is expected to be 20 milion in the year 2015. These trends may result in increasing the number of woman drivers and elderly drivers. Therefore, this study aims to identify routes that reflect characteristics of each driver's preferences. A survey was conducted on different routes attributes for variances drivers. Driver types were classified by gender, age, and driving career. Accordingly, a weight for road composition attribute such as number of lanes, number of accidents, slope was estimated by using Swing Weighting technique in Multi-Attribute Utility Theory. In addition, a case study was conducted and identified weights were applied to routes. In result, drivers commonly prefer short route when they considered their routes. Also, male drivers prefer speedy and shorter route than that of female drivers. Elderly drivers prefer safe routes that represent low accidents rate. Moreover driving career under a year drivers prefer safe and easy routes. Therefore, we may conclude that the necessity of diversified route information is essential in the future car navigation system.

At present, the number of local governments using the Traffic Information Center are increasing and drivers are utilizing its traffic information from VMS installed on roads in cities. However, the cases of the user's utility of VMS about urban roads with special characteristics different from expressways and urban highways haven't been evaluated so far. Because VMS is a medium installed from a budget to provide traffic information, it is necessary to evaluate and manage the efficiency of users. This study judged that the efficiency of the drivers using VMS of urban roads most influences the duty on alternative route information provision so that it established its evaluation criteria. In addition, it needs to raise its value by many drivers' observation of VMS. Therefore, in case of the same conditions, the installation location of VMS should be a road section with much traffic volume so its the evaluation criteria was established. At present, the study results can be utilized to raise the user's utility of VMS installed in the urban roads.

A traffic detection system can be deemed as a traffic data and information collection system to serve traffic policies, traffic management, and user services. The system plays a crucial role in verifying whether or not the current traffic system has issues or problems by checking out traffic data. In addition, the system does so in finding out a point or a section where an issue or a problem has occurred, if any, and in examining the causes of the issue or problem, the extent of its impact that has occurred and spread, and a method for resolving it. However, the existing point detection system of Korea has too many flaws. In order to fix the flaws, in this paper, the theoretical characteristics of the section detection system were researched in relation to the calculation of travel time. In addition, the travel time of probe cars was obtained by field survey, and it was compared to that of spot and section detection data. Then, simulation was performed to determine the optimal section detection interval. In conclusion, introduction of optimal section detection system was examined in order to achieve the advanced road management including traffic policy, traffic management, and user services.

In this paper, we analyzed performance of vehicle detection for ITS (Intelligent Transport System) applications. We simulated the vehicle detection at Hi-Pass System is based on DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communication). DSRC is a wireless network using ITS, including GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites in conjunction with the national transportation system. The system performance is evaluated in terms of bit error probability. In the simulation, the vehicle speed is set at 60 km/h and carrier frequency is 5.8 GHz. Wireless channel is modeled as the Rician fading channel. In the transmitter, the ASK (amplitude shift keying) modulation scheme is applied. From simulation results, we confirmed that performance of applied Alamouti scheme is better than other systems.

Spectrum sensing is one of the most important technologies in cognitive radio. Although many studies have considered energy detection technique as the spectrum sensing technique, noise variance in practical systems is difficult to estimate accurately. Thus, in the real system, the probability of false alarm will not be maintained constant. In this paper, with considering that the cognitive radio does not know the primary user's signal, we propose a new spectrum sensing scheme which can operate without the information of noise variance. Through simulations, we show that the proposed scheme can detect spectrum with the condition of unknown noise information and have robustness for the change of noise variance.

Lee, Dong-Hoon ; Gautam, Navin ; Pyun, Jae-Young ;
The Journal of The Korea Institute of Intelligent Transport Systems, volume 10, issue 3, 2011, Pages 101~109
In this paper, we present a new routing protocol, multipath and multi-priority based routing protocol, (MMRP) for wireless multimedia sensor networks. The proposed MMRP chooses the multiple routing paths from source to the sink, then the selected paths are assigned with different priority levels depending upon the residual energy and transmission delay in the routing paths. That is, the highly prioritized I frames of the MPEG video are transmitted over the high priority routing paths, and other P and B frames are transmitted over the lower priority routing paths. The proposed MMRP protocol can be applied to time critical applications which require both lower latency and low power consumption over wireless multimedia sensor network. Simulations results of MMRP protocol show respectively an improvement of 23.48% and 23.11% in energy conservation and 81.6% and 32.01% improvement in latency as compared to protocols without and with multipath routing.
