Abstract:
A novel wire antenna for future dedicated short range communications vehicleto- vehicle communications is introduced. The proposed antenna carries low-profile and lowcost features, and possesses an improved gain performance. This article also includes a specific feed network design for the proposed antenna to meet the mechanical and manufacturing requirements. Two different numerical techniques using CST Microwave Studio and HFSS have been applied for evaluating the performance of the proposed antenna. The whole system including the feed network and the antenna elements is integrated, and its performance is also assessed.
