Short summary
We extend our recent findings regarding various antenna mounting positions, analysing a typical rural street traffic scenario. Varying antenna characteristics are evaluated regarding their communication and sensor suitability to address future intelligent transportation systems based on joint radar-communications. The mirror position with a 16x16 patch array is recommended, whereas for the bumper and the roof less focused antennas like a 4x4 patch array are recommended.
