Inter-vehicle communication has aroused much interest because of its goal of reducing traffic accidents. In a non-platooning situation, where vehicles travel freely, multiple hop (MH) inter-vehicle communication has not yet been examined. In this paper a simple MH broadcast protocol is proposed, and shown to be effective. The effect of several parameters important to a MH network, such as maximum number of hops and data rate, are investigated. Multiple hop is shown to be superior to the conventional single hop (SH) system using non-platoon inter-vehicle communication.
