Path loss modeling for vehicle-to-vehicle communications
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology
Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications have received increasingattention lately, but there is a lack of reported results regarding important quantities such as path loss. This paper presents parameterized path loss models for V2V communications based on extensive sets of measurement data collected mainly under line-of-sight conditions in four different propagation environments: highway, rural, urban, and suburban. The results show that the path loss exponent is low for V2V communications, i.e., path loss slowly increases with increasing distance. We compare our results to those previously reported and find that, while they confirm some of the earlier work, there are also differences that motivate the need for further studies.
