Over the past several years, there has been significant interest and progress in using wireless communication technologies for vehicular environments in order to increase traffic safety and efficiency. Due to the fact that these systems are still under development and large-scale tests based on real hardware are difficult to manage, simulations are a widely-used and cost-efficient method to explore such scenarios. Furthermore, simulations provide a possibility to look at specific aspects individually and to identify major influencing effects out of a wide range of configurations. In this context, we use the HP XC4000 for an extensive and detailed sensitivity analysis in order to evaluate the robustness and performance of communication protocols as well as to capture the complex characteristics of such systems in terms of an empirical model.
