multipath considerations2
Multipath Considerations
  • Steady state test at ~ 92 m null spot
  • Almost complete loss of packets
test track conclusions
Test Track Conclusions
  • Single-sender, single-receiver DSRC under direct LoS conditions is robust for a variety of vehicle-vehicle and vehicle-infrastructure safety applications
  • Some degree of packet loss, as expected
    • Multipath transmissions
    • Vehicle obstructing LoS
  • Range, update rate, and latency requirements for the Task 3 safety applications should be feasible
  • Areas for future study include:
    • Transmission power variation
    • Multi-sender, multi-receiver scenarios
