Christopher Saloman, "Simulation of Car-to-X-Communication using IEEE 802.11p," Bachelor Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Friedrich–Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg (FAU), July 2011. (Advisors: David Eckhoff and Falko Dressler)


Wireless technology to enable vehicles to communicate with each other allows for the creation of so called intelligent transportation systems. Based on this technology, innovative applications are being thought of and are also currently being developed. In order to bring those applications to the road, it is essential to guarantee their flawless and scalable operation. To avoid the high costs of real life experiments, the simulation of large-scale Car-To-X communication networks is a popular approach to validate these deployments. Wireless communication in a vehicular environment also brings new challenges to the physical and logical transmission of information, which is why a new amendment to the widely used IEEE 802.11 standard was presented, namely IEEE 802.11p. Due to the lack of existing IEEE 802.11p models for OMNeT++, IEEE 802.11b or similar models are often used to simulate and test Car-To-X communication. However, simulation results may vary strongly from real world measurements, as IEEE 802.11p introduces a set of new features, such as multichannel operation or packet prioritization - both not covered by IEEE 802.11b models. In order to enable the simulation of those networks in a more realistic way, this thesis will present and evaluate a full featured model of IEEE 802.11p for the OMNeT++ modeling framework MiXiM.
