Estimating the Realistic Ground Effect in Automotive Measurements.png

Of the various external sources that can have an impact on the performance (propagation pattern) of vehicle-mounted antennas, ground surfaces are significant contributors. The impact of real ground surfaces is desired information in the development and testing of vehicle-mounted antennas.

This whitepaper will discuss the impact of ground surfaces on the antennas integrated on vehicles for various use-cases. It will introduce systems and techniques applied in automotive antenna testing for this purpose and explain the advantages of full automotive antenna measurements performed in a free space setup paired with specific post-processing techniques.
