IEEE 802.11p


IEEE 802.11p is a version of IEEE 802.11 that is adapted for car-to-car communications and car-to-infrastructure communications(RSU: road side unit). The system is intended to be used for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS).

Due to the speed of the cars, the authentication and authorisation scheme is simplified compared to the original IEEE 802.11.

IEEE 802.11p works in the frequency band from 5.855.925 GHz.
