We are on the verge of an industrial revolution that will make cities smarter, industries more efficient and people’s life easier. Urban communication will place a critical role in this revolution yet due to their heterogeneity and the particularities of the urban environment, the chosen models for representation can no longer be ones specific to cellular networks.

This thesis proposes a new model for wireless communications in urban setting by exploiting stochastic geometry and fractal geometry. It designs a model in two options, the hyperfractal model for vehicles and the hyperfractal model for infrastructure.  Throughout the thesis, we derive tools that allow the manipulation of this model, provide data fitting techniques and demonstrate its utility and ease of use through two applications in wireless metrics computation.
