Communication Density: A Channel Load Metric for Vehicular Communications Research

  title={Communication Density: A Channel Load Metric for Vehicular Communications Research},
  author={Daniel Jiang and Qi Chen and Luca Delgrossi},
  journal={2007 IEEE Internatonal Conference on Mobile Adhoc and Sensor Systems},
While scalability is a fundamental topic in vehicular safety communications, the question of how to measure it has not been satisfactorily resolved. This paper introduces the concept of communication density, which can effectively serve as a metric for channel load in vehicular communications. Communication density is the number of carrier sensible events per unit of time and road. The simulation results presented in this paper demonstrate that broadcast transmissions with the same power… CONTINUE READING
