Abstract

Reliable connectivity between vehicles is a requirement for efficient overtaking warning systems. We investigate the 6 GHz propagation channel between oncoming vehicles with five different types of large obstructing vehicles in a poor scattering environment. The presented channel gains emphasize the advantages of different antenna positions and the difference between a straight road and curved road. We conclude that connectivity ranges on a straight road are close to the minimum distance required by a warning system. We furthermore conclude that the channel gain of antennas mounted inside the vehicle can be higher compared to antennas mounted on the roof, which can increase the connectivity range significantly.
