    Three vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) models and three roadside-to-vehicle (RTV) models, each suitable for RF channel emulation and based on measurements at 5.9 GHz, are presented. Each model captures the joint Doppler-delay characteristics of a different environment. The packet error rate (PER) for each model, measured with an emulator and an 802.11p wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE) prot... View full abstract»

    This article investigates the properties of several non-Jakes Doppler spectra proposed for the vehicle-to-vehicle nonisotropic scattering environment of the open highway. Expressions for the ideal model correlations, level-crossing rates, and average fade durations are derived. The classic Clarke channel model is modified to generate fading signals corresponding to the nonisotropic scattering prof... View full abstract»

    Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications have drawn much attention in recent years. In this article, we discuss tradeoffs between implementation complexity and accuracy of several stochastic channel models for lite V2V environment, and then address spread-spectrum system performance attained using these channel models. Two different propagation environments are considered: urban and open areas (hig... View full abstract»

    Dedicated short range communications (DSRC) enable novel automotive safety applications such as an extended electronic brake light (EEBL) or intersection collision avoidance (ICA). These applications require reliable wireless communications even in scenarios with very high vehicle density, where these networks are primarily interference-limited. Given the uncertainties associated with current simu... View full abstract»

    Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to infrastructure wireless systems are currently under development to improve the traffic safety and efficiency while providing Internet connectivity on the move. A widespread adoption of these wireless vehicular communication technologies will require efficient use of the radio channel resources. To this end, this work proposes and analyzes an opportunistic-driven a... View full abstract»

    East Corridor and Gold Line projects are now going to be reviewed for procurement under the process. A big advantage of the process is that the FTA (Federal Transit Administration) will simplify the application for federal funds by waiving the cost-effectiveness calculation requirements to the extent that private capital will be used since some of the risk is being transferred to the private partn...
