Abstract

Vehicular ad hoc Networks (VANETs) enable vehicles to communicate with each other as well as with roadside units (RSUs). Although there is a significant research effort in radio channel modelling focused in vehicle to vehicle (V2V), not much work has been done for vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) using 3D ray-tracing tools. This work evaluates some important parameters of a V2I wireless channel link such as Received Power, Power Delay Profile, Delay Spread and Coherence Bandwidth, in an urban scenario using a deterministic simulation model based on an in-house 3D Ray-Launching algorithm. Analysis using Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) at 868MHz, 2.4 and 5.9 GHz are presented. Results show the highly impact that the distance, link frequency, location of RSUs and obstacles in the LoS (Line of Sight) have in V2I channel propagation. These results constitute the start point in the deployment of radio-planning in V2I environments.
