    Proper selection of the propulsion system to meet the requirements of an electric passenger vehicle is of prime importance. Choice may be made among alternating current, direct current, or combined systems. Each approach can be implemented by utilizing various control techniques and power elements. For instance, an ac system may use an adjustable voltage inverter (AVI) or a pulse-width-modulated i... View full abstract»

    Measurements of the amplitude probability distribution (APD) of the envelope and measurements of other parameters of automobile ignition noise were made at frequencies between 24 and 30 MHz. The measurements were conducted at a quiet site where several single stationary vehicles were operated at engine speeds corresponding to idle and cruise. Measurements were also made at two distances near a fre... View full abstract»

    As a direct data interface between dispatcher and driver, a 4K minicomputer with a very efficient program helps resolve many thorny problems in large fleet dispatching. Data bursts of 300 mS at the beginning of each radio transmission reliably convey the identification and address information with little interference to voice transmissions. The concept of city-wide as opposed to zone coverage is f... View full abstract»

    The design, analysis, and selected measurements of a new type of vehicle detector called a magnetic gradient vehicle detector (MGVD) that is under development by the Federal Highway Administration are described. The detector consists of a transducer buried in a transverse slot in the pavement surface. "Lead in" cables connect the transducer to roadside detector electronics. When a vehicle approach...

  • Synchronous longitudinal reference signal generation—An experimental study of its use in automatic vehicle control

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 100 - 114

    A method of obtaining a continuous reference signal for use in the synchronous longitudinal control of automated ground transport systems is presented and evaluated in preliminary full-scale tests. The results of the latter, which were obtained using a reference signal in conjunction with an instrumented vehicle at speeds from 0 to 46 ft/s over 1600 ft of roadway, are presented. Successful operati... View full abstract»
