    Some measurement techniques and results employed to evaluate advanced mobile phone system (AMPS) data receivers being driven by a Rayleigh fading channel are described. These performance measurements were used as a mechanism for comparing the design effectiveness of various bit clock recovery systems. Of five data receiver types evaluated, two models employed a full-wave rectifier in the bit clock... View full abstract»

    A simple mathematical model is used to predict co-channel and adjacent channel interference effects in land mobile radio, valid for flat urban terrain. Results obtained, although oversimplified compared with real-life mobile radio systems, yield insights into the properties of differing types of modulation. View full abstract»

    In mobile communications such as automobile telephone systems, an instantaneous interruption is caused by rapid fading, and speech quality is markedly deteriorated. A pitch-synchronized interpolation method is proposed to improve this quality. This method utilizes the fact that most speech signal regions have a pitch period. In this method, when an instantaneous interruption is detected at the rec... View full abstract»

    The land mobile market is reviewed briefly, and services that might be provided by hybrid terrestrial/land mobile satellite systems (T/LMSS) are discussed. In view of the expected urban/ suburban patterns of planned terrestrial systems it is suggested that a satellite may prove a cost-effective complement to terrestrial systems for serving thinly populated or large geographical areas. A basic land... View full abstract»

    A velocity-adaptive lateral controller is designed to meet requirements pertaining to lateral-position tracking accuracy, ride comfort, and an insensitivity to both changes in critical vehicle parameters and disturbance forces. This controller was tested under full-scale conditions wherein a wire-follower configuration and a dual-mode test vehicle were employed. The latter was automatically steere... View full abstract»
