Optimized Design of a Multi-Function/Multi-Band Antenna for Automotive Rescue Systems

The development of efficient automotive accident management systems requires the design of complex multi-function antennas enabling different wireless services (e.g., localization, voice and data communications, emergency calls, etc...). Starting from different specifications (electrical, mechanical, and aerodynamic), the design of a multifunction antenna must consider, in addition to the usual antenna design requirements, also interference phenomena arising from the integration of different classes of antennas in a compact device. In this framework, the paper describes a methodology based on a stochastic multi-phases optimization approach for the design of an integrated multi-function/multi-band antenna system.
