A Realistic Physical Layer Simulation Model for IEEE 802.11p

I am fascinated by Software Defined Radios (SDRs) and the ability to program radio transceivers in software. In previous projects, I built SDR-based prototypes to assess and improve the performance of vehicular networks and sensor networks.
In the context of the EDGE project, I will use an SDR implementation of IEEE 802.11p to characterize the physical layer performance of vehicular networks and derive a simulation model that offers a good trade-off between realism and computational complexity.
