    The study of a complex system is usually accomplished through analytical models which permit the direct calculation and optimization of the key parameters. In some cases parameters of interest can only be expressed as probability distributions, which complicates the modeling process. Here simulation methods are appropriate for developing a usable if not fully optimal solution to the problem. Since... View full abstract»

    The low storage capacity of presently available galvanic batteries restricts the effective use of electrically driven vehicles to a limited range of transportation jobs. For this application any change from vehicles driven by internal combustion engines to vehicles driven by electric motors can only be justified if the use of electrical drives results in an overall cost reduction. This criterion m... View full abstract»

    Advances in motors and drives can make a significant improvement in the performance and cost effectiveness of electric vehicles (EV's)--increasing the vehicle range by as much as 20 percent, while reducing costs as much as 15 percent below present levels. Preliminary studies suggest that improvements in conventional dc motors and drives can only achieve modest improvements (about 3 percent in rang... View full abstract»

    Today's electric vehicles are severely limited in multistop and go driving range and accelerating capability by the lead acid battery's inability to handle high power peaks while maintaining maximum energy storage capability. A hybrid flywheel/battery system can be used to isolate the battery from the accelerating power peaks, and should recover a substantial part of the braking energy. This paper... View full abstract»

    Sensors faithfully transduce automotive control parameters into electric signals suitable for transmission to the electronic controls. Two parameters key to engine control are crankshaft position and manifold absolute pressure, which are used in both fuel and ignition control systems. This paper describes a variety of sensor concepts for each of the two parameters, and provides guidelines for expe... View full abstract»

    This paper is concerned with the review and discussion of topics fundamental to the design of operational radar sensors for automatically activated braking systems for automobiles. Expected benefits in terms of reduced accidents and societal costs are briefly discussed, and a short discussion on modes of operation is presented. Target detectability characteristics are reviewed, and selected vehicl... View full abstract»

    Lateral control is an essential function for all forms of individual automated ground transport. Here two aspects of such control--the magnetic field distributions associated with a guideway-based, wire-reference configuration, and the associated vehicle-based sensors--are reviewed. Two wire-reference schemes have thus far been suggested. In the first, the amplitude characteristics of the magnetic... View full abstract»

  • Computer model for paging system coverage

    A simple model for estimating propagation coverage in a multiple-transmitter sequential paging system is described. The results of previous single-transmitter propagation studies are employed in a computer program where the resultant is a grid plot of hypothetical receiver locations, each with the expected number of transmitter signals exceeding the paging receiver threshold. The resulting plots r... View full abstract»

    Supporting structures for antenna hardware for a new high-capacity mobile telephone system (HCMTS) are being designed to meet operational electrical requirements and to survive extreme weather conditions. Systematic techniques are being used to choose dimensions for critical elements in the trade-off of cost versus performance. View full abstract»

    The U.S. Department of Transportation/Urban Mass Transportation Administration (DOT/UMTA) is developing an automatic vehicle monitoring (AVM) system which will accommodate both fixed and random-route users. This is a two phase program. Phase I is testing four location subsystems in Philadelphia. Phase II contemplates selecting one contractor to develop, fabricate, install, and test a completely fu...
