In vehicular platoons, a lead vehicle broadcasts messages carrying information on its vehicle position and velocity to update the platoon’s vehicles. The following vehicle acts as a data-forwarding node so that the messages from the leader can be disseminated to all the vehicles in the platoon. This report presents a channel estimation approach in vehicular platoons, where the channel gain between any two vehicles in the platoon can be estimated by another vehicle based on their distance gap.
