Abstract English This paper presents results for vehicle-to-vehicle
channel characterization based on measurements conducted for
the merging lane scenarios on a highway. We present power
delay profiles as well as channel gains and analyze important
propagation mechanisms to see the impact of line-of-sight (LOS)
and the antenna radiation pattern on the total received power. It
is found that the absence of LOS and strong scattering objects,
close to the point where the ramp merges with a highway,
may result in poor received signal strength. The probability of
dropping packets also increases where there is LOS between TX
and RX but the antenna pattern is not omni-directional. A dip in
the antenna pattern affects the received signal strength severely
which poses a challenge for vehicle-to-vehicle communication in
safety critical situations.
