    Need is indeed, the mother of invention. For decades, in this country, a prime critera of the automobile manufacturers' was large comfortable "muscle" cars. This is what the public wanted and the automotive market was (and still is) a buyers' market. Small gas efficient foreign cars were a rarity until the 1970s. (It should be noted that gasoline in most foreign countries has been relatively very ... View full abstract»

    Just as the oft-repeated TV commercial asks "How do you spell 'relief'?," and the answer is given as "R-O-L-A-I-D-S", an attorney would spell "consumer electronics" as "L-I-T-I-G-A-T-I-O-N." The very term" consumer electronics" identifies those products that will be produced in large numbers, used (and abused) by the masses, and which utilize electricity, that phenomenon well known for electrocuti...

    A system has been developed to permit on-board vehicular surveillance by means of a closed-circuit TV, camera working with an FM two-way radio. This system has been installed on an AIRTRANS vehicle at the Dallas/ Ft. Worth airport in the fall of 1979. A snapshot is derived from the closed-circuit camera, to be transmitted in 3 seconds over a standard business or public safety channel. The pictures... View full abstract»

    Multipath interference is one of the most serious problems for mobile receivers. To reduce interference many methods and systems have been developed. Two most effective methods are space diversity and electrical cancellation of the interference. The latter method needs not only some complex circuitry such as microprocessor but also a relatively long adjusting time. On the other hand space diversit... View full abstract»
