MEASURED STATISTICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF AUTOMOTIVE IGNITION NOISE

Measurements have been made of the noise peak amplitude distribution of a number of identically equipped vehicles over a fixed period of time. Both vertical and horizontal polarizations were used, and measurements were made at two frequencies, 145 and 230 MHz. These statistics were then compared to various probability distributions to attempt to characterize the amplitude distribution of the noise. The distributions studied were: the log-normal, the exponential, the Rayleigh, and the Weibull distributions. It was concluded that the best fit was provided by the Weibull distribution. The parpmeters of the best fiting distribution are primarily a function of the antenna's polarization, with frequency having only a minor effect.
