In vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, link reliability has been regarded as an important performance metric, especially for safety-critical broadcast services. In this paper, we analyze the link reliability of the centralized mode (Mode 3) for long-term evolution (LTE)-based V2V (LTE-V2V) from the PHY/MAC perspectives. Moreover, we derive the statistical distribution of the interference distance and interference to noise ratio (INR) for LTE-V2V. Based on this analytical framework, we propose a resource size control (RSC) method for improving link reliability. The proposed RSC adapts the resource size according to the macroscopic network parameters such as vehicle density, communication range, and message size. Numerical results show that the proposed method improves link reliability compared with the fixed resource size setting in a highway scenario. Moreover, it is observed that larger-sized resources are preferred when the vehicle density decreases, the message size increases, or the communication range decreases.
