Measuring and Using the RSSI of IEEE 802.11p
The scalability of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) applications is difficult to test in a Field Operational Test (FOT) due to the high number of ITS equipped vehicles required. Therefore, computer simulations for evaluating different wireless communication technologies for ITS different applications can serve as a complement. In this paper, the authors present results from lab measurements conducted on the CVIS hardware platform equipped with the upcoming standard IEEE 802.11p. They have measured the packet error rate versus the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) for different packet lengths.
