Abstract [en]

Vehicular communication is introduced by using information and communication technology in moving vehicles. This communication is designed to improve driver’s efficiency,to optimize road network, to take services from the location where the driver drives thevehicle, etc. The overall intention is to implement an intelligent transportation system.This system can not only improve the entire traffic management system but also cancontribute in greater scale in socio-economic environment. In Europe, ITS-G5 is beingdesigned and developed for vehicular communication. It actually provides the radiointerface by which the moving vehicles can communicate with one another. ITS-G5is based on IEEE 802.11p. The key attribute of ITS-G5 is asynchronous transmissionmode. It means that several channels can transmit and receive signal simultaneously.Dual transceiver is being used for multi-channel operation. One transceiver operates allthe time onto the control channel. The second transceiver operates onto the rest of thechannels by switching one after the other. The idea is to improve network efficiency,bandwidth coverage, transmission range etc. comparing to single radio. Before the fullimplementation of multi-channel operation in ITS-G5, it is needed to observe the bene-fit, performance that it does. It can be evaluated by measuring that all of the channelsare working properly and consistently without any interruption, the transmission is nothampering when the transceiver switches from one channel to the other, etc. Simulationis the only means to evaluate the performance of multi-channel environment prior tothe implementation of ITS-G5 in Europe. In this work, I have studied the simulationenvironment, set up the simulation for vehicular communication. The multi-channeloperation of ITS-G5 has been also validated and evaluated. I have also developed analgorithm to propagate the message through the defined channel based on its priority.
