We investigate the influence of Non Line Of Sight (NLOS) components on the performance of Vehicular VLC (V-VLC). Given the steep rise of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for road safety applications, the need for reliable technologies for Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication rises. Among others, V-VLC turned out to be a promising candidate to enhance vehicular connectivity, which nicely complements Radio Frequency (RF)-based technologies. V-VLC is supposed to be a Line Of Sight (LOS) communication technology, nevertheless, there is also a NLOS component caused by reflection on the road surface. In this paper, we investigate this influence in a real-world measurement campaign for different ground surfaces. Our results are very interesting as they (a) confirm a huge impact, and (b) indicate such reflections being actually helpful as they improve the received signal strength.
