Our Project

We want to develop a module in ROS that enables vehicle to vehicle communication via ROS. Our project consists of two cars: The lead car and the follower car. If the lead car should crash, it shall send a message to the follower car which causes it to stop. This should prevent that the follower car crashes into the same obstacle. For sensing the crash, we use an accelerometer (IMU) in the lead car. If a specific threshold in deceleration is met, the car should publish a message over ROS communication. If the follower car receives this specific message, it should cause an immediate stop.
