Chicago scenario

For this scenario we have simulated a full unidirectional simulation in a urban scenario. We have used an area from Chicago downtown, because it is a rich multipath environment, due to its grid road network surrounded by tall buildings.

The scenario has 235 roads, 21 traffic lights, 129 intersections and 163 buildings. we are interested in higher-layer metrics and performance of a full unidirectional simulation with a protocol stack against a hybrid propagation model. We have configured OMNET++/INET to simulate 802.11p network interfaces at 5.875 GHZ, which is the carrier frequency of the first channel in the 5.9 GHz DSRC band, with a data rate of 6 Mbps and a periodic beacon generator on top of it. We use 500 bytes beacons at 10 beacons/s for all vehicles. We have generated a traffic demand that inserts 157 vehicles, one every 1.5 s, from the edges of the scenario. The simulation runs for 738 s of simulated time, until all vehicles have finished their routes and left the simulation. The simulations have been replicated 5 times with different seeds. We run Veneris with Opal propagation versus a usual stochastic model, Nakagami-m.

A only-traffic version of the scenario can be run on the browser. But do not expect great performance on the browser: expect a low framerate and maybe run out of memory after a while. If that is the case you can try this.

To run the full scenario, download and install Veneris and execute the scene Chicago.
