AB - This paper addresses the problem of adaptive power control based on outage probability minimization in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs), called a Power Control Algorithm Based on Outage Probability Awareness (PC-OPA). Unlike most of the existing works, our power control method aims at minimizing the outage probability and then is subject to the density of nodes in certain area. To fulfill power control, cumulative interference is assumed to be available at the transmitter of each terminal. The transmitters sent data by maximum power and then get the cumulative interference-aware outage probability. Furthermore, we build the interference model by stochastic geometric theory and then derive the expression between outage probability and cumulative interference. According to the expression, we adjust the transmitter power and optimize the outage probability. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed power control strategies. It is shown that the PC-OPA can achieve a significant performance gain in terms of the outage probability and throughputs. Comparing MPC (Maximum Power Control algorithm) and WFPC (Water-Filled Power Control algorithm), the proposed PC-OPA decreased by 23% in terms of the outage probability and increased by 25% in terms of throughputs.
