This book provides practical and theoretical aspects for automotive antenna measurements. It comprehensively covers all the information you need to design, develop, place, and use antennas and antenna systems in automotive applications. Special chapters are devoted to some of the most advanced topics in this area, including OTA measurements for Vehicle to Everything (V2X) applications, emulation of virtual drive testing, and specific topics for measurements of automotive RADAR systems. You will understand the various measurement techniques specifically for automotive antennas, including chamber design, absorbers, near-to-far field transformation, and some of the newest techniques such as the use of drones. The book presents both well accepted and standard practices and includes innovative methods that help you quickly adapt to the rapidly evolving field of automotive antenna testing today. This is an excellent reference for antenna engineers, automotive system designers, and anyone who measures and designs antennas for automotive applications.
