Abstract

In this paper we explore the potential of doing multicast transmissions in millimeter wave vehicular communications using beamwidth-aware scheduling. Using a dataset of measured vehicle positions in a highway scenario, we show that often a considerable number of neighbouring vehicles can be reached with a single millimeter wave transmission. Furthermore, we propose a fully distributed beamwidth-aware scheduler using sub-6GHz control information exchange that opportunistically exploits multicast opportunities. We show that this scheduler can provide a significant delay reduction for millimeter wave vehicular communications.
