Understanding How Antennas Behave on Moving Vehicles @RemcomSoftware

High-frequency antennas face no shortage of challenges—even without the added complication of being integrated into the electronic systems of motor vehicles. But on a moving vehicle, an antenna must perform while in motion and with ever-changing terrain conditions, with signal barriers and reflectors constantly changing the performance of the antenna. To better understand how antennas can be designed for such applications, Remcom offers an eight-page white paper, “Using Simulation to Optimize Safety, Performance and Cost Savings When Integrating an Antenna Onto a Platform.” It details the use of computer simulation tools to model the performance of antennas under moving conditions, identify problems, and find potential solutions. The white paper notes that simulation offers an advantage in antenna analysis speed compared to building and testing each antenna design. The tim...
