5G New Radio Sidelink Link-Level Simulator is developed to accelerate the study of 5G New Radio (NR) sidelink (SL). It closely follows the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 16 specifications on NR SL.
This initial release supports the following SL features, but not limited to,
To facilitate simulations, It also supports additional features such as error-free and error-prone 2nd-stage Sidelink Control Information (SCI2), constant management, range conversion, and adaptive sweeping.
