Dynamic environmental fading in urban VANETs
A method of approximating the Rician K-Factor with considerations of the local human-built environment is proposed for urban VANETs. The model is validated experimentally on a busy street in Australia, in the presence and absence of other vehicles. The model is found to accurately predict actual channel measurements in close-range communications scenarios.
