Autonomous driving in future vehicle system has imposed a high demand for reliable and power efficient communication to provide safe-driving to vehicular users. In order to achieve reliability and power efficiency, in this paper, a vehicular trellis architecture (VTA) is proposed. VTA allows traffic information to be transmitted either via vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), through the dedicated remote radio head (RRH) and its dynamically select vehicle(s) or, direct vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication. We investigated the adaptive switching over V2I/V2V, to enhance efficient system reliability while optimizing the average power consumption of VTA. This paper presents a vehicular trellis algorithm (VTRA), which approximate solutions to the optimization problem. Simulation results demonstrate that the selection of joint V2I/V2V communication reduces the total power consumption of the system for a varying number of threshold distance and vehicles.
