V2V Cooperative Relaying Communications Under Interference and Outdated CSI

In this paper, the authors study a cooperative vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) interference-limited communication system with decode-and-forward relaying operating over double-Nakagami (DN) fading channels. This distribution has been proposed as a fading model for scenarios where both the transmitter and the receiver are in motion, as is the case in V2V communications. For the purposes of the authors' analysis, the authors introduce the bivariate DN distribution and derive statistical metrics for this distribution, such as the probability density function, the cumulative distribution function, and the moments. The new expressions have been employed to model the outdated channel state information (CSI) that is due to the fast time-varying nature of the wireless medium and the delay naturally existing between relay selection and data transmission instances. The analysis considers two relay selection schemes, according to the relay-destination channel quality, namely the well-known best relay selection (BRS) and a new one termed as threshold-based relay selection, which offers lower complexity than BRS. Using the authors' analytical framework, exact and asymptotic performance results are obtained for the outage and the average symbol error probabilities, while the diversity order has been also evaluated. The numerical and simulation results corroborate the authors theoretical ones and quantify the impact of the outdated CSI, level of interference, and varying distances between the relay nodes and the final destination on the system's performance.
