### Abstract

The efficient usage of multiple channels allocated for vehicular communications is deemed crucial to support the increasing spectrum demand of current and upcoming Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). In this context, an accurate modeling of adjacent channel interference (ACI) is needed to better understand its adverse effects on simultaneous communications on different channels. In this paper, we modeled ACI in the simulation framework Veins by strictly following the standard specifications in what concerns spectral emission masks. The model was validated in a set of experiments using off-the-shelf chipsets and a software defined radio. We then studied ACI effects at the physical and packet levels in multi-channel vehicular networks through extensive simulations. Our results clearly indicate that slightly larger delays and significantly lower reliability can be experienced when ACI is modeled. Insights are also provided about the usability of the devised ACI simulation model in future studies.
