We investigate the impact of realistic light radiation pattern on Vehicular VLC (V-VLC) based on an empirical study for typical car headlight and taillight modules. Our research community identified visible light as a communication technology that has a number of advantages to radio communication. Besides the huge spectrum that is fully unlicensed, the technology allows for very high data rates and reduced interference from parallel communications. After seeing a number of breakthroughs in indoor environments, the vehicular networking community got interested in the technology for a number of reasons as well. First successful application have been reported but practical evidence is still limited. This is due to the use of very abstract simulation models and limited field testing as of now. We aim at bridging this gap by developing a realistic simulation model based on empirical data from a measurement campaign. Based on this model, we particularly investigate the impact of the light radiation pattern of typical car light modules on the communication performance. We can report that the angle and distance of the communicating cars have a significant impact and need to be carefully considered for developing V-VLC applications.
