Some Open Safety Issues in Vehicular Networks

Abstract : In this position paper, we briefly review some accepted beliefs which may hide open issues regarding dependability or timeliness in SC scenarios, and we give examples of shortcomings and challenges. Due to space constraints, we focus solely on protocol/algorithmic design issues, failures, limitations of on-board technologies, and radio channel access latencies in the presence of contention. Despite their importance, software issues (correct instantiations of protocols, algorithms, and applications) are not addressed here. We use the terminology defined by S. Shladover: Automation is autonomy augmented with wireless communication capabilities. For fulfilling goal Ω, should we shoot for autonomous driving or for automated driving? Should we trust human supervision (ultimately, if ever needed, some human is in charge) or full automation rather (absolutely no human intervention)?
