A time-domain (TD) channel estimation (CE) technique is proposed in this paper to enhance the CE performance of IEEE 802.11p standards in cases when the pilot density is insufficient to accurately estimate channel states in rich-scattering environments. This technique is based on a least squares (LS) algorithm and assisted from Zadoff-Chu (ZC) sequences arranged into the symbol prefix and training preambles. The channel conditions tested in this paper were comprehensively simulated in urban, suburb and express-way scenarios.
