4G and 5G based V2X Communications

A wide variety of work has been down in vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications to enable various applications for road safety, traffic efficiency and passenger infotainment. Although IEEE 802.11p used to be considered as the main technology for V2X, new research trends nowadays are considering cellular technology as the future of V2X due to its rapid development and ubiquitous presence. This tutorial surveys the recent development and challenges on 4G LTE and 5G mobile wireless networks to support efficient V2X communications. In the first part, we highlight the technical motivations of 4G LTE for V2X communications. In the second part, we explore the LTE V2X architecture and operating scenarios being considered. In the third part, we discuss the challenges and the new trends in 4G and 5G for supporting V2X communications such as physical layer structure, synchronization, resource allocation, security, multimedia broadcast multicast services (MBMS), as well as possible solutions to these challenges. Finally, we discuss some open research issues for future 5G based V2X communications.


Prof. Yi Qian received a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Clemson University. He is a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). Prior to joining UNL, he worked in the telecommunications industry, academia, and the government. His research interests include information assurance and network security, network design, network modeling, simulation and performance analysis for next generation wireless communication networks, vehicular networks, high-speed networks and the Internet. He has a successful track record to lead research teams and to publish research results in leading scientific journals and conferences. Prof. Yi Qian is a Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE Communications Society. He is the Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine.
