    Railroads are safe, and this safety is due to the traffic control and communication technologies that were introduced in the first half of the 20th century. Modern versions of these traditional technologies continue to provide safe and sound train movement by ensuring the integrity of the generation and delivery of the authorities provided to train crews to advance down the track. With that stated... View full abstract»

    There has been a substantial interest in developing an interoperable communication-based train-control system (TCS) for decades. The initial effort started almost 25 years ago with the advanced TCS (ATCS) efforts. This was an industry-driven effort to define a new form of train control. Unfortunately, it relied on large, central, computing-based systems, which have proven impractical for train con... View full abstract»

    This article has described the impetus for the world's largest application of wireless geolocation, specifically, the FCC's E-911 requirement in the United States. It has also discussed two basic approaches to wireless geolocation, time and power derived, and showed that U.S. wireless carriers have primarily chosen time-derived approaches to meet the E-911 requirements for their more than 200 mill...

    This article has discussed the theoretical and modeling aspects of the RP_CC schemes in detail. There are several combinations of CC algorithms that have been vastly investigated, tested, and validated for the performance of HSDPA network. The simulation results confirm that the combined usage of RP_CC algorithms can achieve a significantly better overall performance for the HSDPA network compared... View full abstract»

    Intersector interference management is crucial in universal frequency reuse systems like OFDMA. In this article, we described advanced interference management techniques for future OFDMA communication systems. Such techniques include dynamic frequency reuse, intersector interference-based power control, and effective intersector handoff using disjoint FL and RL and beacon signaling. Dynamic freque...

    In this article, we are interested in an important paradigm of secondary systems known as cognitive radio (CR) networks where the secondary terminals are envisioned to be capable of sensing and reasoning about the operating radio environments and thereby autonomously adjusting their transceiver parameters to exploit the underutilized radio resources in a dynamic fashion. CR networks inevitably lea... View full abstract»

    The North American market remains a market sought by all of the world's leading manufacturers. Because the world's automotive sector is so reliant on the same supplier base, a major perturbation in the North American auto market affects the competitiveness of auto manufacturers throughout the world. Consequently, it is important to gain insight into what caused General Motors (GM) and Chrysler to ... View full abstract»
