With the number of deaths, commute time, and injuries constantly rising due to

human driving errors, it’s time for a new transportation system, where humans are no

longer involved in driving decisions and vehicles are the only machine that decide the

actions of a vehicle. To accomplish a fully autonomous world, it’s important for

vehicles to be able to communicate instantly and report their movements in order to

reduce accidents. This paper discusses four approaches to vehicle to vehicle

communication, as well as the underlying standards and technology that enable

vehicles to accomplish communicating.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
