Claim of US Patent No. 10,433,310

1. A vehicle comprising:a wireless communication unit configured to form a direct beam pattern for performing direct wireless communication with a single target vehicle, and configured to form an omnidirectional beam pattern for performing wireless communication with at least two peripheral vehicles;
a camera module configured to obtain an image of the at least one peripheral vehicle; and
a display unit configured to display the obtained image,
wherein,
when the single target vehicle is selected, by a user, from the at least one peripheral vehicle based on the displayed image, the direct beam pattern is formed toward the selected single target vehicle, and
when the single target vehicle is not selected, by the user, from the at least one peripheral vehicle based on the displayed image, the omnidirectional beam pattern is formed to communicate with the at least two peripheral vehicles,
wherein the wireless communication unit comprises:
a beam forming module configured to form the direct beam pattern and transceive a wireless signal through a radio wave of the direct beam pattern, and configured to form the omnidirectional beam pattern and transceive a wireless signal through a radio wave of the omnidirectional beam pattern; and
a wireless communication control module configured to control the formation of the direct beam pattern according to a position of the single target vehicle, and
wherein the wireless communication unit detects again the position of the single target vehicle when it is determined that the single target vehicle is deviated from the direct beam pattern.
