WVCM 2017

Welcome to the First International Workshop on V2X Channel Measurements and Modeling!

We thank all participants for their contributions to this successful first version of the workshop! A sequel is going to be held in 2018, hence referring you to our new website: WVCM 2018

The UPDATED workshop program is out!

in conjunction with the 28th Annual IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (PIMRC 2017)


co-located with the IEEE 5G Summit Montreal

co-organized by 5GCAR, a H2020 5G PPP Phase 2 project


Vehicular communication is characterized by diverse environments, high mobility of both the communicating entities and their surroundings, and comparatively low antenna heights on vehicles. These characteristics are very different from classical cellular cases and make the vehicular propagation and channel modeling particularly challenging. Additionally, the ultimate goal of next generation Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication systems is enabling accident-free cooperative automated driving. To achieve this goal, the communication system will need to enable a diverse set of use cases, which can result in channel conditions not fully explored in the past (e.g., blockage effects caused by densely packed platooning vehicles, communication between vehicles and vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists, etc.). Finally, in recent years, different frequency bands have been proposed for V2X communications (e.g., in centimeter wave bands, millimeter wave bands, and in visible light spectrum). The impact of frequency band and the propagation characteristics of high frequency (millimeter wave) V2X channels, etc. become very important objects of investigation.

Consequently, this workshop solicits papers that address the following V2X channel measurements and modeling issues:

  • Channel models and measurements for V2V, V2I, V2P, and V2N communication
  • Measurement campaigns in:
    • Sub-6 GHz (centimeter wave in 700 MHz – 6 GHz)
    • higher frequencies incl. millimeter wave (6 GHz – 100 GHz)
    • visible light spectrum
  • Measurement campaigns in
    • Urban environments
    • Highway environments
    • Rural/suburban environments
    • Indoor (parking garages)
    • Train/Railway environments
  • Effects of highly mobile scatterers on V2X channels
  • Impact of dual mobility on V2X channels
  • Blockage modeling
  • Channel modeling and characterization in platooning scenarios
  • Modeling spatial and temporal consistency for V2X channels
  • Frequency-dependent parametrization of V2X channel models
  • Comparison of different frequency bands for V2X
  • Simulation environments in support of more realistic channel modeling (mobility modeling, environment modeling, modeling of new communication modes such as V2P)
  • Implementation of V2X-specific channel models in existing frameworks
  • Results from large experimental testbeds and field operational tests related to V2X channel modeling
  • V2X-specific antenna design and placement, and their impact on channel
  • Channel models for multi antenna systems
  • Advances in geometry-based stochastic V2X channel modeling
  • Advances in geometry-based deterministic V2X channel modeling
