Abstract. The paper presents results of ZigBee communication tests performed in a specifically set electromagnetic environment, with the purpose to determine the applicability of ZigBee technology in non-critical messaging for vehicular communications. Known for its low energy consumption, the ZigBee technology might be used in background messaging for cooperative driving, with the purpose to reduce the overload on the main channels used for emergency message warning, or other critical applications. In the paper are presented the test bed, results and solutions for new approaches with usability to vehicular communications.
