Abstract

In this article, a coplanar waveguide-fed planar antenna is proposed for vehicular communication applications. The proposed antenna consists of a modified Z-shaped radiator and designed on a FR4 substrate with a footprint of 40 × 30 × 1.6 mm3. The design is further made reconfigurable structure for providing switching among the operating bands of the antenna by incorporating the BAR64-03 W PIN diodes. The proposed antenna operates the switching among the complimentary operating bands exist under 2.39–2.8 GHz, 3.32–4.11 GHz, 7.34–9.03 GHz has been observed under different switching conditions. The proposed design also exhibits circularly polarized radiation characteristics under operating bands makes this antenna as a hybrid reconfigurable design. The measured results of fabricated antenna are in good correlation with simulated results. The radiation performance is analysed for stand-alone reconfigurable antenna and the virtual environment on a vehicle body.
