Danlaw unveils V2X through-glass antenna

Danlaw V2X through-glass antenna

Danlaw has released a through-glass integrated V2X antenna that pairs with dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) devices to enable vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications.

Traditional aftermarket antennas require drilling holes or passing cables through window and door openings, which risks damaging vehicle seals. This dual-radio, glass-mounted antenna eliminates the risk of damaging the vehicle by using a coupling pair to pass DSRC signals between the vehicle's interior and exterior.

The easy-to-install antenna 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, wifi, and other antennas are also available on request.

"Our customers running pilot programmes 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."

The antenna enhances the Michigan-based company's connected vehicle portfolio, which includes an aftermarket safety device (ASD) and V2X development tools. The ASD has been selected by pilot programmes supporting multiple applications, including critical safety advice, driver access, and real-time road condition and congestion information. Danlaw development tools include the OmniAir-certified Mx-DSRC conformance test system and Mx-Drive mobility simulator.
