Joint Channel Tracking and ICI Equalisation for VBLAST-OFDM in VANET

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Vehicle Ad-hoc NETwork (VANET) is an emerging technology to help reduce the number of accidents on the road and provide numerous applications such as travel information, maps, route guidance and internet provision on the roads just to name a few. Standards for Vehicle To Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle To Roadside (V2R) are still under review in Europe and the US. The current drafts for US standards allocate seven 10MHz channels at 5.9GHz for V2V and V2R communications. The same band is expected to be adopted in Europe. Due to the high speeds of vehicles, the communication time can be limited to a few seconds, thus high and reliable data rates are desirable to meet the demands of VANET applications.
