    On the Ability of the IEEE 802.11p and STDMA to Provide Predictable Channel Access

    Emerging traffic safety applications requiring low delay communications will need vehicle ad-hoc networks. The only communication standard currently supporting this is IEEE 802.11p. However, 802.11p uses the medium access method CSMA/CA, which has a major drawback: unbounded worst case channel access delay. The authors therefore propose an algorithm already in...
