Abstract: Connected and autonomous vehicles will play a pivotal role in future Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs) and smart cities, in general. UGG Classic Short High-speed and low-latency wireless communication links will allow municipalities to warn vehicles against safety hazards, as well as support cloud-driving solutions to drastically reduce traffic jams and air pollution. To achieve these goals, vehicles need to be equipped with a wide range of sensors generating and exchanging high rate row-data streams. asics lyte 5 uomo Recently, millimeter wave (mmWave) techniques have been introduced as a means of fulfilling such high data rate requirements. Scarpe Air Jordan 6 In this tutorial, we will show how to model a highway communication network and characterize its fundamental link budget metrics. Nike Air Huarache To evaluate our highway network, we will refer to a new theoretical model that accounts for a typical scenario where heavy vehicles (such as buses and lorries) in slow lanes obstruct Lineof-Sight (LOS) paths of vehicles in fast lanes and, hence, act as blockages. Doudoune Parajumpers Pour Femme Our analysis will provide new design insights for mmWave highway communication networks. canada goose canada goose homme In particular, we will show that smaller antenna beamwidths and, unlike bi-dimensional mmWave cellular networks, smaller BS densities do not necessarily have a disruptive impact on improving the SINR outage probability, and consequently the rate coverage probability.
