For emergency vehicle drivers it is an important task to reach the incident location as fast as possible. Therefore a self-organizing green wave could help emergency vehicles to accomplish this goal. This study presents an approach how emergency vehicle can be prioritized at traffic lights and simulates the possible benefit for the emergency vehicle. Traffic data from vehicular communication can be used to find the optimal timing for the traffic light to modify the existing traffic phases and reduce the possible negative impact on other traffic participants.
