An open source implementation of the 3GPP standard CV2X (Rel 14) Mode 4. It is based on an extended version of the SimuLTE OMNeT++ simulator which enables LTE network simulations.

Two variants are available. The first integrates with the Artery framework to provide full ITS-G5 standardisation across the entire communication stack. The second integrates with Veins only.

If you use either CV2X model, we would appreciate a citation of our work.

Important Note: The results in the above citation are based on an old release of the model. Bugs have subsequently been identified and resolved (new release now available) with a new publication under preparation. In the meantime if you are testing OpenCV2X for your research and wish to verify that the results you are getting are correct, please download the following zip file which contains plotted PDR results for a low density scenario. It includes all configuration files required to replicate the results.
