Claas Tebruegge, "Towards Feasible Vehicular Visible Light Communication," PhD Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Paderborn University (UPB), April 2022. (Advisor: Falko Dressler; Referees: Falko Dressler and Sinem Coleri Ergen)


This thesis investigates the suitability of Vehicular Visible Light Communication (V-VLC) for the implementation of intelligent traffic systems and identifies, applies, and evaluates solutions to achieve reliable communication. The general trend towards digitalization and networking offers opportunities to significantly increase efficiency and safety for future traffic. Among others, dynamic scenarios, the number of users, and the high demands on reliability and security result in extraordinary requirements on communication technologies. This is one reason why the question of the communication technology for networking vehicles is not solved at the time of this work. Different technologies and combinations thereof are being discussed. Besides traditional radio communication, V-VLC turned out to be a promising communication technology. Especially the combination of Visible Light Communication (VLC) and radio communication offers the potentials to achieve reliable communication for a diverse set of traffic scenarios. This thesis identifies challenges in the field of visible light communication for the use of Inter-Vehicle Communication (IVC). Special attention is given to the ap- propriate control of vehicle lighting to achieve sufficient bandwidth and bandwidth efficiency, the analysis of legal regulations, especially the radiation characteristics, and the handling of disturbances on the hardware level. For this purpose, analytical considerations, experiments, as well as field tests on prototypes are performed. On the one hand, our investigations show the feasibility of V-VLC in an application-oriented approach, and on the other hand, we develop novel concepts and methods, such as Space-Division Multiple Access (SDMA) on matrix headlights, which represent a further step towards practicable and reliable V-VLC.
