In order to realize a future seamless high-speed road-vehicle communication system, we have proposed using code division multiplexing (CDM) radio transmission scheme by using cyclic shifted-and-extended (CSE) codes as spread codes. As the CSE codes are generated by cyclically shifting and extending a conventionally used code, the number of codes generated from a code is limited to the length of the shift interval and the tolerable period of delayed waves also depends on the length. In this paper, based on CSE codes, we propose a method to minimize the length of the shift interval and a cancellation technique with a simple calculation in order to eliminate the interference from delayed waves caused by the reduction of the length of shift interval. The concept and the BER performances in AWGN, two-paths, and multi-path fading environments are described in this paper. As a result, the maximum transmission rate of CSE-based-CDM transmission per one-code using the newly proposed transmission scheme is 3 times as large as that using conventional CSE codes and DQPSK-CDM transmission scheme.
