Spatial modulation (SM) is a relatively new multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology that can provide high data rate with reasonable spectral efficiency. In this paper, the bit error rate (BER) performance of SM systems under vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) channel models is investigated. The theoretical BER expression is given. The impact of some V2V channel model parameters on the underlying space-time correlation function (STCF) and the BER performance of SM systems are also studied. Simulation results indicate that modulation schemes, maximum Doppler frequency, the distance between the transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx), and antenna element spacings can affect the performance of SM systems.
