The C-V2X or LTE-V standard has been designed to support vehicle to everything (V2X) communications. The standard is an evolution of LTE, and it has been published by the 3GPP in Release 14. This new standard introduces the C-V2X or LTE-V Mode 4 that is specifically designed for V2V communications using the PC5 sidelink interface without any cellular infrastructure support. In Mode 4, vehicles autonomously select and manage their radio resources. Mode 4 is highly relevant since V2V safety applications cannot depend on the availability of infrastructure-based cellular coverage. This paper presents the first analytical models of the communication performance of C-V2X or LTE-V Mode 4. In particular, the paper presents analytical models for the average packet delivery ratio (PDR) as a function of the distance between transmitter and receiver, and for the four different types of transmission errors that can be encountered in C-V2X Mode 4. The models are validated for a wide range of transmission parameters and traffic densities. To this aim, this study compares the results obtained with the analytical models to those obtained with a C-V2X Mode 4 simulator implemented over Veins.

The 3rd Generation Partnership Project released the cellular vehicular-to-everything (C-V2X) specifications as part of the LTE framework in Release 14. C-V2X is the alternative to dedicated short range communications and both are specifically designed for V2X control signaling. C-V2X extends the device-to-de-vice specifications by adding two more modes of operation targeting the vehicular environment in coverage and out of coverage of LTE base stations. Vehicle-to-vehicle communications (V2V) is...

As the 2.4 GHz spectrum band has become significantly congested, there is growing interest from the Wi-Fi proponents, cellular operators, and other stakeholders to use the spectrum in the 5 GHz bands. The 5 GHz bands have emerged as the most coveted bands for launching new wireless applications and services, because of their relatively favorable propagation characteristics and the relative abundance of spectrum therein. To meet the exploding demand for more unlicensed spectrum, regulators across...

To improve safety on the roads, next-generation vehicles will be equipped with short-range communication technologies. Many applications enabled by such communication will be based on a continuous broadcast of information about the own status from each vehicle to the neighborhood, often referred as cooperative awareness or beaconing. Although the only standardized technology allowing direct vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication has been IEEE 802.11p until now, the latest release of long-term ev...

Intelligent transport systems (ITS) have recently attracted much attention, partly arising from the demands of improving road traffic safety and efficiency. 3GPP is addressing the communication needs associated to ITS and vehicle to vehicle (V2V) services as part of LTE Rel-14 enhancements, including unicast, multicast, and sidelink transport options. This paper summarizes the present status of 3GPP standardization, evaluates the different LTE based transport options, and compares the performanc...

In a traffic jam or dense vehicle environment, vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) cannot meet the safety requirement due to serious packet collisions. The traditional cellular network solves packet collisions but suffers from long end-to-end delay. Third-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long-Term Evolution (LTE) overcomes both drawbacks; thus, it may be used, instead of VANETs, in some extreme environments. We use Markov models with dynamic scheduling and semipersistent scheduling (SPS) to ...

Vehicles will soon be equipped with wireless communication systems enabling a variety of new services. At the basis of each service is the transmission of beacon messages that advertise the vehicle's presence. In this letter, we investigate long term evolution (LTE) as the enabling technology for vehicle to vehicle (V2V) beaconing by exploiting: 1) the direct device to device (D2D) communication provided by Release 12 of LTE; and 2) the full duplex (FD) radio, which allows a wireless device to t...

The 4G standard Long Term Evolution (LTE) has been developed for high-bandwidth mobile access for today's data-heavy applications, consequently, a better experience for the end user. Since cellular communication is ready available, LTE communication has been designed to work at high speeds for vehicular communication. The challenge is that the protocols in LTE/LTE-Advanced should not only provide good packet delivery but also adapt to changes in the network topology due to vehicle volume and veh...

Dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) is a powerful new technology that allows vehicles to communicate with each other. [DSRC is the U.S. vehicle communication technology operating in the 5.9-GHz Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) band; the analogous technology in Europe is called Cooperative ITS, and the band is referred to as ITS G5.] In particular, they exchange safety messages that allow collision threats to be identified and avoided. Channel congestion is a significant challenge ...

Abstract Vehicular network is the enabler of various services for transportation means including safety and infotainment applications. It can better deal with the highly dynamic nature of roads and highways. Meanwhile, the existing infrastructure of the cellular networks is unable to cope with the heavy traffic imposed mainly by videos. Thus, the cellular operators may leverage Roadside Untis (RSU) to offload video traffic and provide better quality of experience for vehicle customers. In this p...

Targeting mobile vehicle communications, Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) wireless technology has been widely used in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs). Though DSRC can provide reliable and low-latency communications for various VANET applications, the multi-channel operations standardized by IEEE 802.11p suffer from high contention on control channel, especially in dense traffic scenarios. Meanwhile, as a conventional wireless technology for VANET communications, WiFi is often under...

Real-time status update in future vehicular networks is vital to enable control-level cooperative autonomous driving. Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X), as one of the most promising vehicular wireless technologies, adopts a Semi-Persistent Scheduling (SPS) based Medium-Access-Control (MAC) layer protocol for its sidelink communications. Despite the recent and ongoing efforts to optimize SPS, very few work has considered the status update performance of SPS. In this paper, Age of Information...
Cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) communications have elicited significant scrutiny in recent years owing to amenities such as comfort, efficiency, and an enhanced line-of-sight through the exchange of statistics between vehicles and other entities. In general, achieving less interference in terms of resource allocation and a higher quality of forwarding (QoF) during routing is a major problem owing to the highly mobile environment used in such communications. To overcome this bottleneck, t...

Reliable and scalable wireless transmissions for Internet of Vehicles (IoV) are technically challenging. Each vehicle, from driver-assisted to automated one, will generate a flood of information, up to thousands of times of that by a person. Vehicle density may change drastically over time and location. Emergency messages and real-time cooperative control messages have stringent delay constraints while infotainment applications may tolerate a certain degree of latency. On a congested road, thous...

Featuring direct communications between two user equipments (UEs) without signal relay through a base station, 3GPP sidelink transmissions have manifested their crucial roles in the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) Advanced (LTE-A) for public safety and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) services. With this successful development in LTE-A, the evolution of sidelink transmissions continues in 3GPP New Radio (NR), which renders sidelink an inevitable component as well as downlink and uplink. Targeting at offeri...

We investigate a novel approach of utilizing modern Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS) to reduce multiuser interference in Vehicular Visible Light Communications (V-VLC) by applying Space-Division Multiple Access (SDMA). V-VLC is a promising technology that can complement Radio Frequency (RF) communications to fulfill the high reliability and low latency requirements of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). To achieve this, however, limitations of bandwidth efficiency and multiuser interfe...
