In this paper, we propose a unified TDMA-based scheduling protocol for Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications. In the proposed TDMA-based scheduling protocol, the roadside infrastructure collects the information from the vehicles within its communication coverage through a control channel at the beginning of each transmission frame and then decides how to allocate the time slots to the vehicles for their data transmission requests based on a new designed weight-factor-based scheduler. The provided weight factor jointly takes into consideration the channel quality of communication links, the speed based fairness among vehicles, and different access categories. Simulation results verify the efficiency of the proposed scheduling protocol in terms of the network throughput performance, the fairness among the vehicles, and different accessing priorities of different access categories.
