Ultra - Wideband Channel Model for Intra-Vehicular Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Intra-vehicular wireless sensor networks is a promising new research area that can provide part cost, assembly, maintenance savings and fuel efficiency through the elimination of the wires, and enable new sensor technologies to be integrated into vehicles, which would otherwise be impossible using wired means, such as Intelligent Tire. The most suitable technology that can meet high reliability, strict energy efficiency and robustness requirements of these sensors in such a harsh environment at short distance is Ultra-WideBand (UWB). However, there are currently no detailed models describing the UWB radio channel for intra-vehicular wireless sensor networks making it difficult to design a suitable communication system.
