Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication system is a network of vehicles that communicate with each other to exchange information. The environment between vehicles affect in the signals that travel from the transmitter to the receiver, subsequently, it is important to comprehend the underlying characteristics propagation channels. This paper discusses and models some of the key metrics such as path loss, power delay profile, and delay spread at 5.2 GHz carrier frequency. The analyses are presented for two scenarios; both of the transmitter and receiver are stationary and in moving case with considering the direction of the moving and the separation between the vehicles. Likewise, a probability of a presence of some impediments in between of the vehicles with various separations is considered. The achieved results show that path loss for many types of environments may be predicted with using the presented model channel Model and location of the obstacles is sensitive to the received signals.
