Investigations to the Suitability of Hot-Embossed Films for the Integration of Antennas into Automotive Exterior Parts

The use of radar-based driver assistance systems in the automotive industry is on the rise. So far, such systems including electronics and antennas are produced as closed entities and mounted into the automobile. This leads increasingly to problems of available space due to limited cross-sections and to reduced antenna performances by use of housing and exterior parts. One possible solution for preventing these problems and pointing out new potentials results from the direct integration of antennas into the polymer exterior. The fundamental suitability of hot-embossed thermoplastic films for microwave antennas will be investigated and discussed within this paper.
