This paper presents three different Markov models of a vehicle's power line as a communication medium. Two based on previous literature, and one proposed by this paper. An experimental setup to gather bit error data to create bit error distribution graphs is presented and the experimental results from the experiments are shown. The methods for creating the Markov models is then described and, using the data from the experiments as well as the described method for modelling, the respective models were created. Simulations based on these models were run and the output was compared with the original data.
