Measurement and Analysis of the 60 GHz In-Vehicular Broadband Radio Channel
In this paper, the authors present the results of a measurement campaign regarding the 60 GHz in-vehicular wireless channel. The measurements have been performed inside an aircraft passenger cabin by the use of a modular setup covering a bandwidth of 1 GHz. They consider path loss aspects and investigate the time-dispersive nature of the channel. Additionally the influence of an obstructed line-of-sight is analyzed. Due to the growing demand for broadband services in the area of passenger transport, several technical approaches are currently discussed. A wireless in-vehicular network shall provide access to travel-based information and multimedia contents for entertainment in buses, trains or aircrafts.
