Distributed Radar-aided Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication
Paper in proceedings, 2020

Establishing high-rate vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) linkswith narrow beamwidth is challenging due to the varying networktopology. A too narrow beam may miss the intended receiver,while a too broad beam leads to SNR loss. We propose toharness the high accuracy of radar detections to establish V2V links. In particular, we develop a distributed method where eachvehicle associates local radar detections with GPS informationcommunicated by nearby vehicles. The method relies on thetransformation of relative to global coordinates, the definition ofa suitable metric, and solving an optimal assignment problem. Wedemonstrate that the proposed approach avoids time-consumingchannel estimation and provides high SNR, under the conditionthat reliable relative and absolute location information is present.
