Compact Printed Inverted-F Wide Band Antenna (IFA) For Vehicle Telematics

[Full Text]



R. Darwin, P.Sampath



Inverted F, Wide band, Telematics, Millimeter wave, Reflection coefficient.



Inverted - F antenna is one of the most commonly used antennas in the area of wireless communication devices where compact size plays a huge role due to scarcity of space. Here in this paper we propose an antenna designed to work in millimeter wave which is suitable for vehicle telematics in smart cities where area coverage requirement is in the lower side. Nowadays manufacturers prefer compact antennas for such applications in a luxury vehicle for latest style and aerodynamics reasons. The antenna proposed gives us the bandwidth from 28.6 Ghz to 31.4 GHz range. The Reflection coefficient of the antenna is found to be -15.41 dB. Also the gain is measured to be 2.750 dBi.
