This paper presents for the ﬁrst time a heterogeneous vehicular model with multiple moving small cells and a moving receiver with unreliable backhaul. In this system, a macro-base station connects to multiple moving small cells via wireless backhaul links. A Bernoulli process is adopted to model the backhaul reliability. A selection combining protocol is used at the receiver side to maximize the received signal-tonoise ratio. We investigate the impact of the number of moving small cells, the position of the receiver and the backhaul reliability on the system performance over double- Rayleigh fading channels. Expressions for outage probability are derived.
