Laird Technologies Presents Paper on V2V (DSRC) Antenna Integration at ISAP 2011 Conference

Discussion Focuses on V2V (DSRC) Implementation to Existing Automotive Wireless Systems Architecture



St. Louis, Missouri, USA – November 8, 2011 – Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced that two of its Telematics & Wireless M2M subject matter experts, Director of Engineering Dr. Ayman Duzdar and Senior Staff Engineer Dr. Cheikh Thiam, authored a technical paper discussing V2V (Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC)) antenna integration into existing automotive quad-band antennas. The paper was presented by Dr. Duzdar at the ISAP 2011 conference that took place in Jeju, Korea on October 25-28, 2011. 

The paper, titled “Integrating V2V Functionality at 5.9 GHz Into an Existing Quad-Band Antenna for Automotive Applications”, addressed how V2V (DSRC) functionality could be added to modern automotive wireless systems without affecting other wireless services that exist in that same vehicle. The paper was a result of a joint research project with a major North American automotive manufacturer.  

It further explained how a DSRC antenna was used in tests conducted by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and the Crash Avoidance Partnership-Vehicle Safety Communications 2 (CAMP-VSC2) Consortium. These organizations have been investigating if DSRC at 5.9 GHz can be used for automotive safety applications. For further details, the paper is available free for download on
