High-speed and low-latency communications are one of the major requirements for connected vehicle environments. Safety messages in vehicular networks must arrive on time for each vehicle, and the optimization of driving paths also strongly depends on low-latency traffic information. To comply with the demands, a base station take important roles to provide a short service delay for the vehicles, even at the expense of performance. The relationship between delay time and decoding performance at receiver sides in physical layers can be explained by the performance/complexity tradeoff as follows. To achieve better performance in terms of the minimization of word error rates in decoding, the receiver usually requires higher complexity, which results in larger delays. We analyze this tradeoff based on the receiver queue model. This paper proposes a novel algorithm to adaptively select one of receiver candidates under the constraint of queue stability so as not to degrade low-latency communications. Based on the configurable architecture for multi-input multioutput (MIMO) detectors, this paper shows that the proposed algorithm works well on adaptive MIMO detector selection.
