Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) between automobiles and the road side stations can be accomplished in a special 75 MHz band at 5.9 GHz frequency that has been set aside for transportation use by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The Intelligent Transportation Society of America and the United States Department of Transportation are… (More)
This paper describes a Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) testbed which demonstrates the use of common, off-the-shelf (COTS) products to enable rapid algorithm development from conception to hardware implementation and test.
Location aware applications benefit from accurate position information. The position uncertainty can be reduced through cooperative localization in distributed systems with accurate point-to-point ranging. Received signal strength (RSS) measurement enables low cost, low complexity distance estimation. The distance estimate suffers from two sources… (More)
Researchers performed a system level technical study of physical layer and network layer performance of vehicular communication in a specially licensed Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) 5.9 GHz frequency band. Physical layer analysis provides complete understanding of OFDM based 802.11p performance parameterized by packet length, modulation type,… (More)
