We propose to enable high-throughput, scalable communication for cooperative autonomous vehicles through zero mutual interference (ZMI) networks. Cooperation in complex environments relies on wireless communication, but conventional wireless networks are not designed for cooperative autonomous vehicles and are fundamentally limited by mutual interference. Our approach is to avoid mutual interference by design; ZMI networks provide wired network properties using wireless radio links. In this paper, we present the initial instantiation of a ZMI network based on a multi-radio, multi-channel architecture. The network is constructed such that each vehicle communicates with topological neighbours using a dedicated radio and channel. We also present experimental results that compare the performance of a ZMI network to a conventional inter-vehicle communication network in a cooperative perception and control task. © 2013 IEEE.
