We developed Millimeter-wave high speed spot communication system using radio-over-fiber technology for ITS telecommunication use. This system has wide bandwidth and provides a high-capacity channel between the base station and parked vehicles. The installation conditions (height, elevation angle) of the base station antenna of this system that enabled the largest possible communication area were obtained by simulation. In addition, we measured propagation and transmission characteristics. The width of the error-free service area was 8 m, which enables three vehicles to be served in one service area.
