Communications will obviously play an essential part in ground transportation in a very near future and this is even truer for the automated road. Communications are indeed probably essential between close vehicles and between each vehicle and the infrastructure.
The traditional means of communication which are primarily in point-to-point mode or diffusion mode, do not seem adapted to the automated road. It seems that modes in hierarchical networks as for data processing would be better adapted to the problem. INRIA started to work on Ethernet type radio networks and with mobiles i.e. with a dynamic routing.
