Title: “Requirements, Standards and Solutions for IEEE 802.11p-based Vehicular Networks”
Abstract: Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is an emerging technology to achieve intelligent inter-vehicle communications and improve road traffic safety and efficiency. After almost a decade of research and development activities, vehicular communications for cooperative systems and its enabling technologies, mostly relying on IEEE 802.11p, are in their trial phase, as some major field operational tests are being carried out.
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has standardized a profile of IEEE 802.11p adapted to the 30 MHz frequency spectrum at the 5.9 Ghz band allocated in Europe. ETSI considers two types of messages, Cooperative Awareness Messages (CAM) and Decentralized Environmental Notification Messages. This talk details implementation decisions to evaluate the performance of CAM and DENM facilities through an experimental testbed deployed in the urban environment. The ETSI solution has been validated in a extensive testing campaign in order to analyze the influence in CAM and DENM performance of aspects such as vehicle speed, signal quality or message dissemination rules.
The talk is part of a series of seminars given by PhD students on ICT of our University, presenting their ongoing research activities in the area of telecommunications.
The goal of the seminars is to provide an overview on ongoing research activities, highlight common interests and explore emerging possibilities for collaboration between different research areas.
