Evaluation Of Interference-Cancellation Based MAC Protocol For Vehicular Communications Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2018 IEEE. We evaluate a new MAC layer algorithm based on slotted ALOHA with successive interference cancellation(SIC) for IEEE 802.11p vehicular communications standard and test it by taking into consideration the performance of underlying physical layer in the presence of a realistic empirical fading channel model. The performance of slotted ALOHA-SIC MAC scheme with respect to average packet loss ratio, throughput, and channel access delay is studied. This scheme can significantly improve the channel access delay and throughput performance in vehicular networks when compared to the carrier sense multiple access scheme proposed in 802.11.
