The safety of ship traffic in inland waterway is crucial and relies on wireless communications. Yet previous wireless communication studies have focused on coastal and vehicles on land. This manuscript present measurement and analyses ship-to-boat pontoon campaign investigating the wireless propagation channel at 5.9 GHz in inland waterway. Research explore in particular the effect of ship motion transverse to and parallel to a fixed boat pontoon. And study analyze the effects of line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight conditions, which typify “inland intelligent waterway” scenarios. Beside different motion conditions like moving transverse to and parallel to boat pontoon, research also explore channel metrics such as path loss, small-scale fading, and correlations of signal with ship motion. The research results show that the relative motion of ships in inland intelligent waterway communication cannot be ignored.
