This thesis highlights the significance of antennas in modern communication systems and contributes to the field of wireless communication by presenting new and inno-vative microstrip patch antenna designs, suitable for a variety of applications. It also emphasizes the necessity of compact and adaptable antenna designs that ensure reli-able communication capabilities while preserving the form factor. The featured designs offer a promising solution for enhancing the performance of contemporary communi-cation systems, thereby facilitating seamless communication for diverse applications. The designs include a single-sided printed circular ring fractal antenna, a compact GPS antenna for autonomous vehicles’ shark fin aerial, and a dual-band 1 x 2 coupled monopole printed antenna array. These antenna designs furnish dependable and ef-fective operability for biomedical applications, GPS reception in Vehicle-to-Everything communication, and Internet of Things based smart home devices and sensors, mak-ing them an excellent resource to advance the development of wireless communication technologies.
