Abstract

In the recent year’s vehicular ad hoc networks VANETs has received significant attention in the intelligent transport system research. Vehicle-to-vehicle V2V communication can be considered an important approach to help the drivers to satisfy requirements like less congestion, accident warning, road
exploration, etc. The propagation issues such as path loss, multipath fading, shadowing loss, depolarization loss, and polarization mismatch loss significantly affect the reliability of V2V communication.

The goal of this paper is to evaluate the performance of the PHY layer in V2V communication using a modified Spatial Channel Model SCM-MIMO. The simulation results observed that the transmitted signal is affected by a multipath fading channel.
