Abstract

A dual band diversity antenna is proposed for vehicular communications. The antenna works at both 5.9 GHz and 60 GHz simultaneously which makes it a suitable candidate for next generation intelligent transportation systems (ITS). High isolation of the two antenna elements with transmission less than -25 dB at both bands guarantees an optimum diversity performance. The theoretical limit of the diversity gain according to the propagation condition is investigated. It is shown that the effective diversity antenna gain (DAG) of the design is 8.7 dB in a uniform propagation scenario which is only 0.04 dB less than the theoretical limit.
