English abstract:
Future intelligent transportation systems (ITS) will necessitate wireless vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications. This wireless link can be implemented by several technologies, such as digital broadcasting, cellular communication, or dedicated short range communication (DSRC) systems. Analyses of the coverage and capacity requirements are presented when each of the three systems are used to implement the V2I link. We show that digital broadcasting systems are inherently capacity limited and do not scale appropriately. Furthermore, we show that Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) can implement the V2I link using either a dedicated channel (DCH) or a multimedia broadcast/multicast service (MBMS), as well as a hybrid approach. In every case, such V2I systems scale well and are capacity limited. We also show that Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) systems scale well, provide ample capacity, and are coverage limited. Finally, a direct quantitative comparison of the presented systems is given to show their scaling behavior with the number of users and geographical coverage.
