Vehicle-to-vehicle radio links suffer from power variations, multipath fading and associated Doppler spreading in frequency, as well as interference form other vehicles. These effects are investigated in the context of an Automated Vehicle Control Systems (AVCS) employing vehicle platoons. A statistical model for the channel is considered and the performance of the network involving many links is evaluated. We compare the performance of Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA), Direct Sequence Code Division Multiple Access (DS-CDMA), and Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA). Reliability of the radio link is investigated by specifying the radio spectrum occupation for a given required reliability of the radio link.
