Felix Erlacher, Florian Klingler, Christoph Sommer and Falko Dressler, "On the Impact of Street Width on 5.9 GHz Radio Signal Propagation in Vehicular Networks," Proceedings of 11th IEEE/IFIP Conference on Wireless On demand Network Systems and Services (WONS 2014), Obergurgl, Austria, April 2014, pp. 143–146.


Given the broad acceptance of the DSRC/WAVE protocol stack in the vehicularnetworking community, both the automotive industry and the scientificcommunity are working towards so-called "day one" applications.Currently, large scale field operational tests are going on to assess theperformance of developed protocols and applications. Still, the keytechnique for performance evaluation is simulation. Accurate microscopicsimulation of Inter-Vehicle Communication (IVC) is needed, especially forsafety critical applications. This is reflected in many recent publicationstrying to push this in terms of radio shadowing models, signal propagation,etc. Still, it is not fully understood to characterize some effects giventhe constraints in terms of simulation time and performance. We concentrateon the fading model. Simulating freeway scenarios, the two ray interferencemodel is considered the base line, but what about suburban and cityscenarios? This paper looks into this investigating, for the first time,the impact of the street width, i.e., distance between buildings, and widths, itsrelation to the correct use of propagation models. We conducted differentmeasurement campaigns on streets with different and narrowstreets., compare theresults to theoretic models that are frequently used for IVC studies. Themost prominent result is that we discovered a clear difference whenassessing safety applications in wide streets compared to the
