Wireless vehicular communication will increase the safety of road users. The reliability of vehicular communication links is of high importance as links with low reliability may diminish the advantage of having situational traffic information. The goal of our investigation is to obtain a reliable coverage area for non-stationary vehicular scenarios. Therefore we propose a deep neural network (DNN) for predicting the expected frame error rate (FER). The DNN is trained in a supervised fashion, where a time-limited sequence of channel frequency responses has been labeled with its corresponding FER values assuming an underlying wireless communication system, i.e. IEEE 802.11p. For generating the training dataset we use a geometry-based stochastic channel model (GSCM). We obtain the ground truth FER by emulating the time-varying frequency responses using a hardware-in-the-loop setup. Our GSCM provides the propagation path parameters which we use to fix the statistics of the fading process at one point in space for an arbitrary amount of time, enabling accurate FER estimation. Using this dataset we achieve an accuracy of 85 % of the DNN. We use the trained model to predict the FER for measured time-varying channel transfer functions obtained during a measurement campaign. We compare the predicted output of the DNN to the measured FER on the road and obtain a prediction accuracy of 78 %.
