Dong Yan, Haofan Yi, Danping He, Ke Guan, Bo Ai, Zhangdui Zhong, Junhyeong Kim, Heesang Chung: Channel Characterization for Satellite Link and Terrestrial Link of Vehicular Communication in the mmWave Band. In: IEEE Access, 7 , pp. 173559-173570, 2019, ISSN: 2169-3536.

Abstract

In the vision of intelligent transportation, vehicles are expected to feature with advanced applications, such as automatic road enforcement, dynamic traffic light sequence, and autonomous driving. Therefore, real-time and fast dynamic information exchanges are required, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications are highly demanded. In this work, the channel characteristics of vehicular communication are analyzed in the millimeter-wave (mmWave) band at 22.1-23.1 GHz. Specifically, two types of links (the satellite link and the terrestrial link) are considered in urban and highway scenarios with different weather conditions. The ray-tracing simulator together with calibrated electromagnetic parameters is employed to practically generate wideband channels. The key channel parameters of each link including the received power, Rician K -factor, root-mean-square delay spread, and angular spreads are explored. The co-channel interferences between the two links are analyzed as well. The observations and conclusions of this work can be useful for the design of V2X communication technologies.
