Abstract

In this paper we investigate the effects of vehicular traffic on body-to-body (B2B) communications channels in an urban environment at 2.45 GHz. In particular, the impact of differing vehicle types passing in the vicinity of a B2B link are investigated for different body orientations relative to one another at the side of a busy urban street. Initial findings suggest that the average disturbance in a B2B channel can last for 2 seconds and depending on the vehicle size, fades in excess of 40 dB can occur. The body orientations are shown to be a significant factor on the effects of vehicular traffic on the B2B channel.
