In order to avoid transmission collisions in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs), a reliable and ecient Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol is needed. Vehicular MANETs (VANETs) have vehicles as network nodes and their main characteristics are the high mobility and speed. Active Safety applications for VANETs need to establish reliable communications with(More)
—Nowadays, researchers show more and more interests to Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs), which are a specific instance of Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) where nodes are vehicles. In VANETs, vehicles have no energy resource constraint which could extend coverage and network lifetime, but have a high mobility patterns that cause frequent and fast topology(More)
— In DS-CDMA communications, the conventional receiver is the RAKE receiver. In the downlink (base station to mobile) signalling with cell-dependent scrambling, orthogonal codes and a common channel for all the users, this receiver does not maximize the Signal-to-Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (SINR) at its output. Another receiver, with the same structure(More)
The ad hoc wireless exchange of position and velocity information between vehicles enables a plethora of new applications that can increase the safety and efficiency of driving. Efficient and reliable flooding mechanisms for vehicular applications mandate correct and timely received positions, vehicular safety applications even more so. This work first(More)
— The conventional receiver for DS-CDMA communications is the RAKE receiver which is a matched filter (MF), matched to the operations of spreading, pulse shape filtering and channel filtering. The RAKE receiver assumes a sparse/pathwise channel model so that the channel matched filtering gets done pathwise, with delay adjustment and decor-relation per path(More)
