1. A method executed by an ego vehicle, the method comprising:
calculating, by a processor of the ego vehicle, a view angle overlap between a first sensor of the ego vehicle and a second sensor of a roadway device, wherein the view angle overlap is an amount of sensor view overlap shared by first sensor and the second sensor;
determining an amount of ego sensor data to share with the roadway device based on the view angle overlap;
building a sharing message that includes the amount of ego sensor data in a payload of the sharing message; and
transmitting, by a communication unit of the ego vehicle, the sharing message to the roadway device.
