Communication access method and user equipment

Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a communication access method and user equipment, where the method includes sending, by a first user equipment, a first channel access request message before determining to send first information, detecting, by the first user equipment in a reserved resource, a second channel access request message sent by another user equipment, and then, sending, by the first user equipment, the first information when it is determined that the second channel access request message sent by the other user equipment is not detected in the reserved resource or a second scheduling priority carried in the second channel access request message detected in the reserved resource is lower than the first scheduling priority. Therefore, competition with another user equipment for a channel resource is avoided, and a probability of a collision occurring when information is sent on a channel is reduced..

Collision avoidance apparatus

A collision avoidance apparatus for a vehicle includes an object sensor that detects one or more objects around the vehicle; and an electronic control unit that (i) determines a likelihood for the vehicle to collide with the object, based on at least one of a distance between the vehicle and the object, and a relative speed of the object with respect to the vehicle; and (ii) starts executing a drive support to avoid the collision between the vehicle and the object when the likelihood of the collision is greater than or equal to a first level. A value of the first level is reduced in a case where a number of objects detected by the object sensor is less than or equal to a predetermined number than in a case where the number of the objects is greater than the predetermined number..
