Abstract
Emerging vehicular communications are a key to combat several mobility issues, like road safety and efficiency.
Dedicated short range communications (DSRC) is a wireless technology, operating at 5.9GHz, designed for automotive use. To operate, this technology has two types of devices, one for vehicles and another for roadside. This paper presents the design of an antenna for the vehicle unit of the DSRC system. High bandwidth, omnidirectional radiation pattern with circular polarization and reduced dimensionsmake this antenna particularly suitable for this application.
