The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 12 standards introduced sidelink (SL) channels for direct communication between multiple user equipments (UEs) without being mediated by an eNodeB in Long Term Evolution (LTE). This service was enhanced in 3GPP Release 14 using SLs for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication, referred to as LTE-Vehicular (LTE-V) services. As a new technology, its performance needs to be estimated under various channel conditions prior to practical deployment, in order to help tune parameters appropriately for radio network planning. In this paper, a quantitative analysis of the performance of LTE-V SLs is performed using MATLAB based simulation for various Doppler spread in the fading channel. The simulation demonstrates performance using throughput and block error rate (BLER) as the descriptors for different signal to noise ratio (SNR) levels. The performance was also checked for different number of MIMO receiving antennas. An analysis of the simulation results is presented, which highlights the impact of different parameters.
