Abstract

Generous increments in powerful electronic systems and functions have produced significant implications for the vehicular industry, especially in connecting the electronics infrastructure as it is complicated and costly. A limited amount of research has been conducted to investigate proper wireless advancements that might reasonable with the emerging network standard within the context of intravehicular networks. This paper reports an experimental investigation of Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) links within guiding structures for a vehicular environment. The experiment has characterized the infrared transmission characteristics using different types of materials and the influence of the geometry on significant infrared channel parameters. The upper and lower 3-dB frequencies for line of sight (LOS) transmission in the tubes demonstrate that the tubes do not significantly change the frequency response of the transmission but this rather depends on the other channel factors such as materials and geometry.
