NR V2X Communications at Millimeter Waves: An End-to-End Performance Evaluation

05/20/2020 ∙ by Tommaso Zugno, et al. ∙ 0

3GPP NR V2X represents the new 3GPP standard for next-generation vehicular systems which, among other innovations, supports vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) operations in the millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum to address the communication requirements of future intelligent automotive networks. While mmWaves will enable massive data rates and low latency, the propagation characteristics at very high frequencies become very challenging, thereby calling for accurate performance evaluations as a means to properly assess the performance of such systems. Along these lines, in this paper MilliCar, the new ns-3 module based on the latest NR V2X specifications, is used to provide an end-to-end performance evaluation of mmWave V2V networks. We investigate the impact of different propagation scenarios and system parameters, including the inter-vehicle distance, the adopted frame numerology, and the modulation and coding scheme, and provide guidelines towards the most promising V2V deployment configurations.
