Danlaw's Through Glass Integrated V2X Antenna
Danlaw released its Through Glass Integrated V2X Antenna, which pairs with dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) devices to enable vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications. Traditional aftermarket antennas require drilling holes or passing cables through window and door openings, which risks damaging vehicle seals. Danlaw's dual-radio, glass-mounted antenna is designed to eliminate the risk of damaging the vehicle by using a coupling pair to pass DSRC signals between the vehicle's interior and exterior. The antenna is reportedly easy to install and can be mounted on the rear, front, or side windows using automotive-grade glass adhesive. This flexible installation allows the shortest cable route to the V2X device, thus reducing signal losses due to cable length.
The design incorporates an integrated GNSS antenna on the interior coupler. Optional cellular, Wi-Fi, and other antennas are also available on request.
"Our customers running pilot programs want to install V2X DSRC systems on vehicles with best-in-class RF performance without modifying their cars," said Scott Morell, Danlaw's VP of engineering. "Combined with our aftermarket V2X safety device, this enables V2X capabilities to be installed on vehicles simply and easily."
