RF Simulation applications in automotive antenna integration

RF simulation plays a very important role for the integration of antennas on vehicles and helps anticipating performances, optimizing validation process, defining antenna placement and technical rules, exploring different propagation scenarios.
In this presentation, different examples of Renault RF simulations regarding antenna applications such as vehicle access (RKE, PASE), AM/FM/DAB radio, BLE, Wi-Fi, V2X and cellular (3G, 4G, 5G) are explored. Antenna main characteristics such as reflection coefficient, gain and radiation pattern are studied for different applications, then examples of link budget and propagation scenarios are presented, respectively using FEKO and WinProp.
