Abstract: "Performance Analysis of a Hybrid Channel for Foglet Assisted Smart Asset Reporting"

Smart asset management along road sides and in deserted areas is a topic of deprived attention. We find most of the work in emergency reporting services in intelligent transportation system (ITS) and rural areas, but not much in asset reporting. Currently available asset management mechanisms are based on scheduled maintenance and does not effectively report any emergency situation in timely manner. In this paper, we propose an hybrid communication system for asset management and emergency reporting architecture for smart transportation. We incorporate Foglets along with visible light communication (VLC) and radio frequency (RF) communication. We present channel model and parameters of an hybrid model to support intelligent transportation system (ITS) system. Simulations show high improvement in the system performance in terms of communication range and received data. We present comparative analysis of hybrid ITS system implementation and VLC system alone.
