English abstract:
Traffic safety is one of the key applications for
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). In order to meet the strict
requirements of safety related wireless communication a robust
and reliable radio link is necessary. The complex vehicular
environment, from a radio propagation viewpoint, represents a
challenge for the receiver. We show that even under poor receive
conditions the use of multiple antennas and a low-complexity
channel tracking algorithm improves the receiver performance.
The analysis is performed on data obtained from real-world
vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) tunnel measurements in line-of-sight
(LOS), non line-of-sight (NLOS), and overtaking scenarios. In
this contribution we apply and extend the pilot-assisted channel
tracking (PACT) algorithm to a multi antenna receiver for IEEE
802.11p. The achievable improvement of the frame success ratio
(FSR) of a two antenna receiver compared to a single antenna
receiver is up to 26% (without any channel tracking). Using
pilot-assisted channel tracking the FSR is further increased by 12 %.
