Abstract

Intra-Vehicular Wireless Sensor Networks (IVWSNs) is one of the major advances in electrical smart cars. It could extend the driving distance of E-cars by reducing the weight of bulky cables. It can also bring more sensing functions, turning the car into smart units for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Until now, most works of IVWSNs channel characterization are focused on in-car wireless communication. This paper presents for the first time, to author's knowledge, the channel characterization of a non-line-of-sight damper-to-damper wireless communication at 2.4 GHz frequency band, including the signal reflection from ground. A method of 3D EM simulation is provided. Static and dynamic on-field car measurement is also performed on a commercial car with different road profiles. It shows that different road profiles equally impact path loss specification because of similar permittivity. From on-field measurements, it proves that 5.25 MHz frequency isolation leads to uncorrelated channels.
