In this paper, a microstrip array antenna is designed, fabricated and measured for ETCS(Electronic Toll Collection System). To reduce effect of external propagation environment, we use edge-cuffed element and to obtain wider axial ratio and increased bandwidth, we use the sequential rotation array method. Also to fulfill ETCS, roadside equipment are designed to be provide a radiation pattern which can accurately pinpoint the designated communication area without interference of another lanes. And we make and apply an absorber to the array antenna to reduce SLL(Side Lobe Level). From the measurement, we get that return-loss at center frequency is -20.675dB, axial ratio is 0.35dB and the gain is 20.26dBi. And we found that SLL is reduced.
