Vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) is a technique used to improve road safety and reduce traffic jams. IEEE standardized VANET as IEEE 802.11p and vehicular environment having capacity and capability to support Intelligent transport system (ITS). The purpose of work was to simulate IEEE 802.11p waveforms using MATLAB and AWR Virtual system simulator (VSS). The performance of the generated waveform is analyzed by using cancellation plot and Bit error rate (BER) graph. The main contribution of this work is to provide co-simulation environment of 802.11p waveform generation and reception for VANET application on MATLAB and AWR tool. This work also incorporated the multiband transmission by spectrum sensing to enable cognitive radio-enabled 802.11p waveform generation. Since the allocated band for the VANET application is not sufficient for the high dense environment like in urban city especially for safety application, multiband CR-enabled 802.11p waveform generation is required.
