We present results from vehicle to vehicle RF propagation measurements centered at 900 MHz. We focus on determining delay spread probability distribution parameters (in particular the Rician K factor) and path loss rates. Our results are discussed with implications for the use of RF communication between automobiles in Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS). Our paper consists of a description of the IVHS concept along with a brief overview of wireless propagation theory. We then discuss our measured parameters with respect to implementing an RF transmission system between vehicles.<
