Outage in Motorway Multi-Lane VANETs with Hardcore Headway Distance Using Synthetic Traces

by   Konstantinos Koufos, et al.

In this paper we analyze synthetic mobility traces generated for three-lane unidirectional motorway traffic to find that the locations of vehicles along a lane are better modeled by a hardcore point process instead of the widely-accepted Poisson point process (PPP). In order to capture the repulsion between successive vehicles while maintaining a level of analytical tractability, we make a simple extension to PPP: We model the inter-vehicle distance along a lane equal to the sum of a constant hardcore distance and an exponentially distributed random variable. We calculate the J-function and the Ripley's K-function for this point process. We fit the parameters of the point process to the available traces, and we illustrate that the higher the average speed along a lane, the more prominent the hardcore component becomes. In addition, we consider a transmitter-receiver link on the same lane, and we generate simple formulae for the moments of interference under reduced Palm measure for that lane, and without conditioning for other lanes. Finally, we illustrate that under Rayleigh fading a shifted-gamma approximation for the distribution of interference per lane provides a very good fit to the simulated outage probability using synthetic traces while the PPP fails.
