Original Abstract

The Car2Car communication will use a reserved frequency band at 5.9 GHz. One of the key requirements for a Car2Car antenna is that the gain is concentrated in the horizontal plane, which is a problem due to the limited ground plane of a car roof. The influence of roof curvature, roof racks and panorama glass roofs were investigated to quantify them. To the authors knowledge such measurements have not been published yet. Three different antennas were simulated and measured on round ground planes and real car roofs in different configurations. The configuration with a panorama glass roof showed an unexpected high loss of gain in the direction of the glass roof in the range of 15 to 20 dB which result in a drastically reduced communication range to the front direction. This phenomenon is still under investigation.
