A Simple Stochastic Channel Simulator for Car-to-Car Communication at 24 GHz
A channel model, based on stochastics and Ray tracing, is described for a communication system, in which moving participants communicate in the 24 GHz band. A realistic behaviour of propagation effects, both short-term and long-term, is modeled. This allows to simulate and design future vehicle-to-vehicle systems. Due to the increasing importance of safety systems in today's automotive technology, many vehicles are able to share safety relevant information. Information such as traffic status, accidents or weather situations are transmitted using mobile communication systems.
