Abstract

This Disclosure addresses the RF Distribution of vehicular networks in a stationary environment. The disclosure represents the managed RF Distribution of IEEE802.11B systems for this environment, though the concepts are applicable to any vehicular radio system including Bluetooth, and emerging IEEE standards. The Distributed Antenna System is designed using well established principals around leaky RF Transmission lines in a ground originating way, to minimize interference and to manage the RF Environment down to very small cells. In leverages the benefits of the vehicle structure to shadow the antenna and thereby minimized the client and infrastructure RF leakage.
