As part of the EU-H2020-MARSS-5G project, we investigate the V2V communications reliability around a blind intersection. The performance evaluation of such ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) network applications will require tools far beyond traditional metrics based on averages. We therefore explore the so-called meta distribution, and show how average performance is inaccurate in comparison to fine-grained analysis, and in this case quite misleading for real-world deployment. The above is a short video of this research for Case I: Urban intersection, R = 200 m.
