Devising a Horizontal Chamber Array for Automotive OTA Tests in Random Line-Of-Sight
Paper i proceeding, 2016
In this paper we propose an approach to design a horizontal array antenna to reduce the uncertainty of reference measurements in Random Line-Of-Sight Over-The-Air testing in anechoic chambers. The main focus is on wireless communications testing to and from automotive vehicles. The proposed procedure allows to determine the size, the spacing and the number of elements of a horizontal array antenna resulting in an absolute error less than 1 dB. The analysis is based on presenting the output of the ideal digital threshold receiver model of the device under test as a Probability of Detection curve.
