Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) Communication is a developing technology that aims to make road transportation systems intelligent, to avoid accidents and traffic congestions. This thesis presents Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) as a solution that will drive the next generation of V2V systems. The current standards for V2V and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication, based on radio frequency techniques, are revised. Also, the current standard for Visible Light Communication (VLC), IEEE 802.15.7 is analyzed. This project also shows the first steps towards a cost-effective implementation of V2V VLC taking advantage of already available hardware in vehicles. Finally, a transmission system is presented aiming to demonstrate an adaptation of current VLC standards for V2V and V2I communication. Another system based on IR communication is also presented. These are presented as an alternative for V2V and V2I solutions based on radio frequency techniques, opening the door to a relevant industrial application of optical wireless communication.
