IEEE White Paper

Wireless Access in Vehicular Environment (WAVE)

IEEE 802.11 enabled WiFi devices, present in the personal computing devices, communicate with each other after standard authentication, and association procedures. But, consider deploying these devices in a high speed moving automobile, wherein the communication environment rapidly changes, and the transactions have to be completed in a short time interval. IEEE 802.11p (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments – WAVE) amendment attempts to solve this problem of deploying WiFi devices in vehicular environments.

We present here a solution aimed to solve the challenges in physical layer, and MAC layer by demonstrating a high bandwidth required application. It presents the importance of channel utilization efficiency, and synchronization between multiple wireless nodes.
