Abstract:Upcoming technologies like Millimeter-Wave (mmWave) communi- cation can facilitate Inter-Vehicular communication. These Vehicle-To-Vehicle (V2V) networks provide the potential for cooperative driving. However, obstacles in the Line-of-Sight (LoS) of transmitting and receiving vehicles can significantly impact the signal quality of mmWave transmission. Therefore, having a high availability of LoS is important when using mmWave communication. This paper investigates the real world availability of LoS and number of reachable vehicles with mmWave communication. Current research into the availability of LoS mostly utilizes simulations. This research is based on a large dataset of real world traffic situations, provided by the Waymo Open Dataset. By analyzing this data, it has been concluded that at relatively short distances, less than 15 meters, most vehicles are reachable with mmWave communications. Furthermore, it has been concluded that there is a higher availability of LoS and vehicles in mmWave communication range in highway environments.
