    The quest for a commercially successful electric vehicle invariably centers around three major factors which influence buyer decisions: performance, range, and cost. Using today's technology, two items within an electric vehicle have the greatest influence on these factors. The battery is the primary determinant of range and to a lesser extent of performance. The design of the propulsion system se... View full abstract»

    In 1977, Cooper and Nettleton proposed a spread spectrum mobile radio system using frequency-hopping multiple access, Hadamard coding for error correction, and differential phase shift keyed (DPSK) modulation, and they claimed higher spectral efficiency than frequency-division (FD) FM systems. Subsequent analyses showed that the DPSK system has a spectral efficiency of 8.4 percent as compared to t... View full abstract»

    Switched diversity with feedback for differential phase shift keying (DPSK) mobile radio is discussed. The technique uses multiple transmit antennas at the base station but only one receive antenna at the mobile. The base station transmits with one antenna that is switched when the mobile informs the base station that the received signal has fallen below a fixed level. The implementation of switch...
