    The design of electronic fuel injection (EFI) controls for the automobile must take into account limitations imposed by the automotive environment and by mass production. This paper outlines the fundamentals of EFI controls and provides insight into the unique problems encountered in the design of a viable system. The impact of the electrical and physical automotive environment is analyzed, and th... View full abstract»

    The usefulness of radar as an automotive obstacle detection system is currently being investigated. Possible applications of such a system presently are automatic braking and air bag actuation and eventually the totally automatic highway. One type of radar having possible potential for these short range applications is diplex Doppler radar. The microwave and electronic circuits basic to a diplex D... View full abstract»

    A system for identifying moving objects such as vehicles, trucks, buses, containers, etc., in which a passive label having a number of dipoles in accordance with a code is attached to the object, is described. A synthetic aperture radar consisting of a Gunn diode mounted within a resonant cavity and connected to a horn is used to illuminate the label. The Gunn diode operates as a homodyne so that ...

    The performance of five low-power HF radio sets was measured at 3.6 MHz under field conditions in Thailand. Variations in performance were noted for CW and voice transmissions as a function of type of set, type of antenna, time of day, and communication range (5-100 mi) in tropical forest (jungle), mountain, and delta terrain. Radio teletype (RTTY) tests over longer paths (out to 1320 km) were mad... View full abstract»
