In this paper, we analyze the performance of vehicular optical camera communication (OCC) towards ultra-reliable and low latency communications (uRLLC). The employed vehicular OCC model uses light-emitting diodes (LED) as transmitter and camera as receiver. In particular, we investigate the performance of the proposed system in terms of bit error rate (BER), spectral efficiency, and transmission latency at different inter-vehicular distances and angle of incidences (AoI). Further, we investigate the use of adaptive modulation to improve the spectral efficiency. From our analysis, we note that by satisfying a given target BER, higher spectral efficiency and lower latency can be achieved through adjusting the AoI towards the smaller degrees and switching into the suitable modulation order. Finally, we verify the results through simulations, which show that OCC can ensure ultra-low latency as well as satisfy the reliability requirements in automotive vehicles.
