Reliable V2V Communication Networks: Applications in Fuel-Efficient Platooning

Monday, April 12, 2021 - 18:00

The project investigated the ability of CV2X and DSRC communication systems to accurately send and receive data between vehicles which have lost their line-of-sight due to occluding obstacles. A propagation model to predict received radio power is developed using WinProp. The power prediction from the model is combined with packet reception data from actual radios to obtain a logistic distribution for packet reception rates as a function received power. We also offer a comparison of the relative performance of DSRC and CV2X systems using their respective logistic distributions and interpret our results to suit those planning vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication systems.
