    An urban multipath propagation experiment, involving the simultaneous transmission from a fixed site of 100-ns pulses at 488, 1280, and 2920 MHz and their reception at a mobile van, is described. A statistical analysis of the data in the resulting multipath responses is given and used as a basis for a statistical model of urban multipath propagation. View full abstract»

    The objective of a traffic-adjusted arterial control system is to minimize travel time along the artery. Such traffic characteristics as volume, road occupancy, or vehicle speed are sensed for both outbound and inbound traffic. These data lead to the selection of a pre-computed strategic plan of the system cycle length, offsets, and splits which matches the current demand and trend of traffic, pos... View full abstract»

    The statistical properties of radio propagation between a mobile unit and a base-station terminal are derived. The power spectrum of the transmission coefficient in the multipath medium is used to determine probability distributions of amplitude and phase, correlations of fields versus time and space at mobile and base stations, level-crossing rates and durations of fades, and random frequency mod...

    A set of linear formulas are derived for estimating the most probable location of a vehicle in a metropolitan area by trilateration techniques, given that multipath introduces errors in range measurements. These formulas are applied to a phase-ranging system (although they are also applicable to pulse-ranging systems), and the results obtained suggest that the probability of large location errors ...
