Impact of Realistic Light Radiation Pattern on Vehicular Visible Light Communication
TLDR
A realistic simulation model is developed based on empirical data from a measurement campaign that investigates the impact of realistic light radiation pattern on Vehicular VLC (V-VLC) based on an empirical study for typical car headlight and taillight modules.
Cluster-based transmit power control in heterogeneous vehicular networks
TLDR
This work presents an approach that combines centrally managed clustering with transmit power control in a heterogeneous vehicular network and shows that such a system can free up to 50% of channel capacity with no more than a 1% drop in system performance.
Empirical Characterization of the NLOS Component for Vehicular Visible Light Communication
TLDR
The results are very interesting as they confirm a huge impact, and indicate such reflections being actually helpful as they improve the received signal strength.
Vehicular Visible Light Communications: A Survey
TLDR
The state of the art of V-VLC is studied, open research questions are identified and the research community as a whole is introduced and the characteristics of the VLC channel are dug into.
Deeply Integrating Visible Light and Radio Communication for Ultra-High Reliable Platooning
TLDR
This initial study explores the capabilities of RF and VLC based communication protocols for platooning with a strong focus on reliability and shows that significant improvements in terms of reliability can be achieved by integrating VLC and deeply integrated heterogeneous communication with RF andVLC can bring platooning one step closer to large-scale real-world deployment.
Impact of Vehicle Type and Headlight Characteristics on Vehicular VLC Performance
TLDR
It is shown that there is a substantial impact on the communication performance of Vehicular VLC based on photometric data and experimental validation, and is seen as an important step towards turning V-VLC into a reliable communication technology.
The Chosen One: Combating VLC Interference in Platooning using Matrix Headlights
TLDR
This paper investigates the LOS behavior of V-VLC and suggests the use of spatial multiplexing using modern Adaptive Front-Lighting Systems (AFSs) to reduce the interference level and make the communication even more robust and reliable.
On the need for coordinated access control for vehicular visible light communication
TLDR
It is argued on the need for a dedicated medium access control (MAC) for Vehicular VLC (V-VLC) with the case that the interference-induced packet loss can be substantial, reaching up to 13 % during rush hours, and should be mitigated with a dedicated MAC for coordinated access control.
An IEEE 802.11 Compliant SDR-Based System for Vehicular Visible Light Communications
TLDR
This work presents a complete Visible Light Communication (VLC) system that integrates a custom-made driver hardware, commercial vehicle light modules, and an Open Source signal processing implementation in GNU Radio, which explicitly offers rapid prototyping.
Design of an Automotive Visible Light Communications Link using an Off-The-Shelf LED Headlight
TLDR
A transmitter circuit to drive a commercial Light Emitting Diode (LED)-based headlight for automotive Visible Light Communication (VLC) and a design methodology for VLC TXs is provided and made available as Open Hardware.
