Power Line Communication (PLC) is a mature technology with application to different fields such as automated meter reading or indoor data communication. However, PLC shows a high potential for other nonconventional fields, like communications in vehicles, where little has been reported. This paper presents experimental results obtained with two broadband PLC modems in two different vehicles. The channel capacity and the impulsive noise are analyzed, and a propel model is proposed which can be of interest to guide future deployment of PLC technology in this new application field.
