and Systems for Wireless Communications in High-Mobility Environments
Authors: Andreas Molisch,

Description: As 5th generation
wireless systems are emerging, it becomes clear that one of the main
applications will be communication in high-mobility environments.
draw particular attention: high-speed trains (HST) and V2X (vehicle-to-vehicle
as well as vehicle-to-infrastructure) communications. V2X communications serve
to increase safety and improve efficiency of vehicular traffic, e.g., warning
of emergency stopping maneuvers, traffic jams, and road hazards.
they will serve as a critical component of autonomous vehicles. HSTs are a
major mode of long-distance passenger transportation in many areas of the
world, and enabling passengers to access high-speed wireless links will
increase their appeal to users. HSTs also can use wireless
connections for improved safety and reliability.
This talk will start out
with a review of these applications and the resulting requirements for 5G
systems for V2X and HST. We will then discuss the particular properties of
propagation channels in these environments, which are significantly different
from many other cellular channels.
We then discuss various approaches to
dealing with the main channel effects such as high Doppler spreads, channel non-stationarities,
and shadowing, and discuss transmission strategies that are well suited for
these environments. We finally outline established (IEEE 802.11p) as well as
emerging 5G (3GPP) system designs for these environments

Description: Developments in
electrification, connectivity and automation not only promise to transform the
automobile but also mobility, particularly in urban environments. This session
will address technological developments and the impact these may have on how
people move around in future cities and how mobility and its associated
infrastructure can be provided if the public and private sector work together.
