Vehicle-to-vehicle communications (V2V) is a promising technique for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems to increase traffic safety and efficiency. A proposed system is the Congestion Assistant, which supports drivers when approaching and driving in traffic congestion. Studies have shown great potential for such systems to reduce the impact of congestion, even at low penetration. However, these studies assumed complete and instantaneous knowledge regarding position and velocity of vehicles ahead.

This paper refines and analyses the TrafficFilter, designed to supply the required information to the Congestion Assistant. Vehicles collaboratively build a so-called TrafficMap, providing over-the-horizon awareness. To this end, an improvement to the Slotted 1-Persistence Flooding called microSlotted 1-Persistence Flooding is proposed and evaluated.

In a simulation study the TrafficFilter is found to be a viable system to build over-the-horizon awareness for future Advanced Driver Assistance Systems like the Congestion Assistant, without triggering the phenomenon known as Broadcast Storm.
