Abstract
This paper presents results for vehicle-to-vehicle

channel characterization based on measurements conducted for

the merging lane scenarios on a highway. We present power

delay profiles as well as channel gains and analyze important

propagation mechanisms to see the impact of line-of-sight (LOS)

and the antenna radiation pattern on the total received power. It

is found that the absence of LOS and strong scattering objects,

close to the point where the ramp merges with a highway,

may result in poor received signal strength. The probability of

dropping packets also increases where there is LOS between TX

and RX but the antenna pattern is not... (More)

the antenna pattern affects the received signal strength severely

which poses a challenge for vehicle-to-vehicle communication in

safety critical situations. (Less)
