Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership (CAMP)

Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership

Connected Vehicle Cooperative Safety Systems use 5.9 GHz Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) to enable vehicle active safety systems which may help drivers avoid crashes. The United States Department of Transportation (U.S.DOT) has partnered with the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership (CAMP) Vehicle Safety Communications 3 (VSC3) Consortium to research, develop and test the technologies that form the framework for these systems. The CAMP VSC3 Consortium consists of the Ford Motor Company, General Motors LLC., Honda R&D Americas, Inc., Hyundai-Kia America Technical Center, Inc., Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America, Inc., Nissan Technical Center North America, Inc., Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. and Volkswagen Group of America.

Scalibility Simulator Development

As a part of CAMP project, Rutgers University and West Virginia University develop a Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Scalability Simulator for the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership Vehicle Safety Communications 3 consortium. The project uses field test data from hundreds of DSRC equipped vehicles to develop and calibrate simulation models so that the simulator can attempt to accurately predict V2V communication performance in very dense, interference-limited scenarios.
