Intelligent transportation system is being made possible by properly selecting reliable antennas. It enhances driver safety and traffic efficiency if the selected antenna properly operates at 5.9 GHz band. Dedicated Short Range Communication Systems (DSRC) guarantees high data rate in the Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communications. Proper antenna selection acquaints high system performance. Directional antennas are demanded for vehicular communication to support different wireless operating environments. This work deals with the design of low profile hexagonal shaped microstrip antennas suited for Vehicular communication. Shorting pins and two sets of v shaped slots are provided to achieve broadband performance. The proposed antenna is designed using ANSYS HFSS software and its performance measures such as return loss, and radiation pattern are analyzed. The subsequent section reveals the design formulae and steps in HFSS (High Frequency Structure Simulator) for the proposed antenna.
