RUG: An Experimentally Validated Urban Propagation Model Quantifying the Incidence of Hidden Terminals in VANETs

Despite the large number of field-trials on VANETs, network simulations still play a vital role in the development of new protocols and for their validation. However some gaps still need to be filled towards scalable and realistic simulation tools, reproducing all the underlying effects. For instance, quite recently, the issue of urban propagation and adequate modelling of obstructions has come to light as a criticality, potentially leading to arguable results. Here a new “urban grid model” is proposed, based on an already validated propagation model of urban corners. Interestingly it permits to quantify the incidence of collisions by hidden terminals in urban areas.
