Integrating V2V functionality at 5.9GHz into an existing quad-band antenna for automotive applications

November 28, 2011 // By Laird Technologies
A DSRC antenna integrated in an existing automotive roof-mount quad-band antenna (Cell, GPS & XM) is presented. VSWR, isolation and gain measurements are shown for this antenna. On-vehicle measurements show that a DSRC antenna with better than 2:1 VSWR and -5dBi vertical average gain at azimuth can be achieved with minimal effect on existing multi-band antenna.
