    A vehicle-location system operating at X band is described. For certain applications, a precise absolute measure of position is not needed. It suffices to determine a vehicle's location only to within a zone. For those systems which require zonal location information only, an "electronic fence" approach is well suited. In this approach, zone boundaries are defined by an array of transmitters. Thes... View full abstract»

    In a small-cell mobile-radio system different base stations transmit different signals simultaneously, and at the same carrier frequency, to mobile vehicles in their respective cells. It is desirable that these cochannel stations be placed as close to one another as possible without creating undue interference. However, as a vehicle moves within a cell, both the desired and undesired signals exhib... View full abstract»

  • Normal and emergency control of a string of vehicles by fixed reference sampled-data control

    A fixed reference control scheme for automated highways is proposed. Each vehicle controls itself; thus multiloop feedback is avoided. A simple proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller is selected from many alternatives. For emergency stopping, a PI controller using a tachometer on a braked wheel can bring a vehicle with rubber tires to a controlled skid-free stop. View full abstract»

    Electronic clocks are rapidly becoming practical for automotive applications. These digital clocks promise not only superior timekeeping in automotive clocks, but they also could be used for a myriad of timing functions throughout the car. These range from turn signal flashers to top-speed limiting and safety-monitoring checks. Integrated circuits utilizing complementary metal oxide semiconductor ... View full abstract»
