A Comparative Study of IEEE 802.11p Physical Layer Coding Schemes and FPGA Implementation for Inter Vehicle Communications
In this paper, the authors provide a comprehensive investigation of the performance and practical implementation issues of two coding schemes, employing concatenated reed solomon codes with convolutional codes and turbo codes, over vehicular ad-hoc networks based on the IEEE 802.11p specifications. In this paper, they present the results of an evaluation of system performance using simulation for the two different coding schemes. They concentrate their evaluation on different propagation conditions (Additive White Gaussian Noise - AWGN, Ricean fading and Rayleigh fading). BER (Bit Error Rate) and SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) for different data rates are examined and tested.
