Measurement of the V2I Channel in Cell-free Vehicular Networks with the Distributed MaMIMOSA Channel Sounder

Abstract

In this paper, we present a small, yet realistic, vehicular cell-free massive MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) architecture deployed at the University of Lille in a typical suburban environment under both Line-of-Sight (LOS) and obstructed LOS (OLOS) shadowing conditions. The radio channels were acquired with a distributed RF-over-Fiber (RoF) upgrade of the real-time channel sounder MaMIMOSA. The system operates at 5.89 GHz with an 80 MHz bandwidth, which corresponds to the ITS frequency band offered by the ITS-G5 and C-V2X technologies. Four omnidirectional receive antennas were placed on the roof of a van moving at a speed of 25 km/h. The propagation channel was measured for various transmit antenna configurations, ranging from co-located antennas to fully distributed antennas. The measurement results show a significant gain in the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) as well as a more uniform coverage and smaller delay spread values with the distributed scenarios compared to the centralized ones. Finally, the path loss measurement results obtained for the cell-free network provide deployment guidelines for the distributed antennas.
