Vehicular communication is emerging as an important ingredient for successful implement of Intelligent Transportation Systems(ITS). But the development of suitable communications systems plays an important role in mobility condition. The desired system should support dynamic wireless exchange of data between nearby vehicles or road side infrastructure. In this regards multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency domain multiplexing (OFDM) system is possibly the best solution. This paper deals with the performance analysis of the MIMO OFDM system in Nakagami-m channel with Doppler shift and also partial hardware implementation of baseband signal processing.
