    IEEE 802.11p is the new standard proposed by the IEEE for wireless connectivity in a vehicular context. It can be used by Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) to make vehicles aware of the traffic around them and increase vehicle safety with applications like cooperative cruise control, assisted merging and assisted lane switching. It is an amendment to the 802.11 standards family, with a physical layer based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) similar to 802.11a. It is designed operate in a harsh environment. The increased degree of movement in a vehicular network creates Doppler shift, for example when vehicles connect to roadside units. Also, the cars on the road generate a significantcant amount of scattering and fast fading effects. This Doppler shift and other effects are accounted for in the design of the physical layer of 802.11p.
