    Mobile radio propagation tests were carried out at 836 MHz from a base station in downtown Philadelphia, Pa., to a mobile which traveled on the city streets. It was found that the median signal power tends to fall off as R-3for distances greater than 1 to 2 mi from the base station antenna. The mean received-signal level was found to be approximately log-normally distributed with a stan... View full abstract»

    A one-year study indicates that low cost, excellent coupling characteristics, and ability to serve vehicles on two closely spaced guideways make the Goubau surface-wave transmission fine an attractive solution to the high-speed ground transportation communications problem. Further testing in a real environment should be undertaken to prove or disprove the encouraging results obtained experimentall... View full abstract»

    Radio signals received by moving vehicles in mountainous regions or in cities with high buildings may exhibit violent amplitude fluctuations because of the existence of standing-wave patterns. An energy-density antenna which samples the electromagnetic energy density has been suggested as a means for combatting this spatial fading phenomenon. A unipole and crossed slots combination with suitable c... View full abstract»

    The design of future mobile radio systems will be based upon an estimated user demand. Systems probably will be engineered to serve the "average business day" spatial distribution of call attempts, which for the purpose of this study was assumed to be uniform. There will be day-to-day fluctuations about this long-term average, the magnitudes of which are only to be conjectured at this time. This p... View full abstract»

  • An optimal automatic car-following system

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):67 - 73

    An automatic car-following system based on optimal control theory is developed for a variety of cost functionals and the resultant system is simulated on an analog computer. Position and velocity response as well as local and asymptotic stability characteristics of a string of vehicles are examined. String behavior when a vehicle leaves or enters the string is also considered. By proper choice of ... View full abstract»
