This paper presents a study of the Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) Physical Layer in order to determine its reliability for Vehicle-2-Vehicle (V2V) communication under varying Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), vehicle speed, delay spread, and packet lengths. In particular, we focus on computing the expected delay when packets with errors are retransmitted until received correctly. IEEE 802.11a MatLab model was used to simulate the DSRC Physical Layer.
