Abstract

With the increasing needs of the automotive industry, 3GPP is developing new functionalities in the long term evolution (LTE) cellular technology to specifically address vehicle-to-everything (V2X) connectivity, including in particular vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) direct communications. At the basis of most enabled applications, either dealing with safety, traffic management or infotainment, it is of particular importance the cooperative awareness service, corresponding to messages sent periodically in broadcast by all vehicles to inform about their status and intentions. To optimize the usage of radio resources, allocations of packets are required to be smartly performed, following algorithms that currently represent a challenging open issue. Having in mind to face the design and validation of resource allocation in LTE-V2V networks when cooperative awareness is addressed, we implemented a simulator, called LTEV2Vsim, which will be shared with all the interested researchers. LTEV2Vsim is written in MATLAB and manages vehicles mobility either following simple models or more complex and realistic input files, and performs allocations following different implemented algorithms, both network controlled and autonomous. Finally, to demonstrate the possibilities of LTEV2Vsim, some example results are provided.
