Abstract

Vehicular ad hoc networks VANETs has recently received significant attention in intelligent transport systems (ITS) research. It provides the driver with information regarding traffic and road conditions which is needed to reduce accidents, which will save many people’s lives. In Vehicle-to-vehicle V2V communication the high-speed mobility of the nodes is the challenge, which significantly affects the reliability of communication. In this paper the utilising of SCM-MIMO channel model, (which is based on V-BLAST channel coding) is present to evaluate the performance of the PHY layer in V2V communication. The simulation results observed that the SCM model can overcome the propagation issues such as path loss, multipath fading and shadowing loss. The simulation considered three different environments, high, medium and low disruptions in urban traffic.
