    In a microwave mobile telecommunications system, a digital message must be transmitted several times to overcome the effects of Rayleigh fades that characterize this channel, and thus ensure a high probability that the message is received error-free. Obviously, there are many different transmission schemes that may be suitable for this channel. We present an analytic approach to an evaluation of t... View full abstract»

    Bit error rate (BER) is analyzed theoretically for diversity reception in the quasi-static Rayleigh fading environment with noise and co-channel interference conditions. The analysis is based upon the canonic receiver model with postdetection combining. This model presents exact BER formulas with respect to carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR) and carrier-to-interference ratio (CIR) for both coherent and ... View full abstract»

    Measurements of the stability of loran C signals in a nonurban area were carried out to determine the suitability of these signals for land vehicle location. Measurements were made at a 25- point grid within a 400 square mile area in central Indiana and extended over a ten month period. It was found that root mean square (rms) time difference prediction errors were on the order of 200 ns or less a... View full abstract»

    A procedure for a radio link design of cellular land mobile radio systems is discussed. The relation between the prescribed total outage and the necessary margins for thermal noise and co-channel interference is first derived. It is then shown that the respective margins can be calculated separately. A simple and useful procedure for determining transmitter power and co-channel reuse distance is p... View full abstract»

    The use of a side-looking radar in conjunction with a sidewall reflector is one means of obtaining lateral position information for use in vehicle automatic lateral control. The principle of operation of a two-frequency radar for such use is presented along with a discussion of the reflector design and construction difficulties. Some results of the full-scale testing of this radar using two differ... View full abstract»

  • Doppler spectrum of single automobiles

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):40 - 51
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (712 KB)

    The Doppler spectrum from an extended object illuminated by a finite beam is analyzed theoretically. The long-time spectrum is the product of an antenna spectrum and an object spectrum, which may lead to significant systematic errors in determination of velocity. The error probability is larger for short-time spectra. Experimental results on automobiles also indicate the existence of a very wide s... View full abstract»
