Ultra-Wideband Channel Modeling for Intravehicle Environment

Free registration required

Executive Summary

With its fine immunity to multipath fading, Ultra-WideBand (UWB) is considered to be a potential technique in constructing intravehicle wireless sensor networks. In the UWB literature, extensive measuring and modeling work have been done for indoor or outdoor propagation, but very few measurements were performed in intravehicle environments. This paper reports the authors' effort in measuring and modeling the UWB propagation channel in commercial vehicle environment. In their experiment, channel sounding is performed in time domain for two environments. In one environment, the transmitting and the receiving antennas are put beneath the chassis. In another environment, both antennas are located inside the engine compartment.
