The proposal of this project is focused on conducting timely research and building new theoretical and ns-3 based models for NR V2X. The research agenda leverages the efforts of two previous and separate activities carried out within the Mobile Networks department at CTTC, both lead by Dr. Lorenza Giupponi.
The planned activities include re-adaptation of upper layers, and in particular RRC (Radio Resource Control), and complete redesign of PHY and MAC layers to account for the new flexible NR frame structure, new resource allocation granularity, novel numerology concepts, and new features introduced in NR V2X to support improved use cases, as compared to C-V2X. In addition, research studies in the areas of mmWave NR V2X and its redesign with beamforming, as well as interface selection, will be performed.
