    Many accidents occur today when distant objects or roadway impediments are not quickly detected. To help avoid these accidents, longer-range safety systems are needed with real-time detection capability and without requiring a line-of-sight (LOS) view by the driver or sensor. Early detection at intersections is required for obstacle location around blind corners and dynamic awareness of approaching vehicles on intersecting roadways View full abstract»

  • Towards multi-mode terminals

    The increasing demand for wireless based services continues to grow with a multiplicity of standards developing. This is driving a need to develop integrated mobile terminals which have multi-mode capabilities, i.e., multiple communication systems which can coexist. The attention of this paper is focused on the coexistence of multiple communication systems via a simple hardware based structure with the algorithms and architectures developed within the framework of multi-mode terminals. The term multi-mode in this paper is limited to a set of standards and to a receiver that is expected to handle different systems with a low hardware complexity. Dedicated hardware is shared and reused by different systems. Existing specifications DAB, DVB-T, HIPERLAN-2 and UMTS are considered as examples in this paper, although the methodology could be applied to other systems. The systems considered can be classified into two categories: multi-carrier systems and single-carrier systems. This paper considers multi-mode terminals from both the algorithm and the architecture viewpoint, reducing receiver complexity by taking advantage of the commonalities among different specifications and receiver requirements. As an example, a joint channel estimation, chip-level frequency domain equalization and parallel interference cancellation structure for WCDMA is presented View full abstract»

  • Renovation of medium capacity transit system traction electronics at Taipei Rapid Transit Systems

    In this paper we present the Taipei Rapid Transit System program to replace the original DC motor drive of the medium capacity transit system trains with modern IGBT circuitry. The medium capacity transit system fleet employed traction power circuit designed in the 1980s, which soon suffered from high failure rate long before midlife overhaul. With modern power electronics technology, we replace the cumbersome drive circuitry for current-controlled power transistors by simple and straightforward gate drive circuit for voltage-controlled IGBTs. Also a large number of discrete components found on the original board are replaced by modules and ICs, improving service reliability and life expectancy View full abstract»

    The TETRA enhanced data service (TEDS) standard has been developed within the Technical Committee TETRA of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute as a major upgrade to the existing narrow-band ETSI TETRA system to supply professional users with high-speed IP packet data services over wireless mobile channels. Multicarrier-based modulation format, powerful payload and header encoding and link adaptation methods are among techniques employed for this purpose. The above enhancements are efficiently combined with improved higher layer protocols enabling a number of new services such as multiple multimedia access with QoS re-negotiation during the session, various priority mechanisms, provision of scheduled access for delay-sensitive applications and support for sectored antenna usage. The aim of this paper is to give a comprehensive overview of the TEDS features with particular emphasis on the physical layer and medium access control features together with representative link and system performance results View full abstract»
