A Feasibility Study on Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Communication: WiFi Vs. WiMAX
Vehicular network is becoming increasingly popular in recent years, in which vehicles constitute a wireless mobile network. Vehicle-To-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-To-Infrastructure (V2I) are two different modes of communication in a vehicular network. Some measurement studies have previously been undertaken to understand the feasibility of using WiFi for V2V and V2I communication. Recently WiMAX is emerging as one of the possible candidates for next generation mobile networks. In this paper, the authors set out to understand the feasibility of using WiMAX for V2I communication as compared to the use of WiFi. Due to the hardware limitation, they focus on a static setting in urban environment.
