Summary:
We present an implementation of the IEEE WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments) 1609.4 standard, Multichannel Operation. This implementation provides concurrent access to a control channel and one or more service channels, enabling vehicles to communicate among each other on multiple service channels while still being able to receive urgent and control information on the control channel. Also included is functionality that provides over-the-air timing synchronization, allowing participation in alternating channel access in the absence of a reliable time source. Our implementation runs on embedded Linux and is built on top of IEEE 802.11p, as well as a customized device driver. This implementation will serve as a key compo- nent in our IEEE 1609-compliant Vehicular Multi-technology Communication Device (VMCD) that is being developed for a VANET testbed under the Smart Drive initiative, supported by the National Science Foundation.
