    Curve-Tilting Function In 2013, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan offered nine "smart driving systems" that utilized combinations of 25 onboard object-detection sensors. Later in 2013, Mercedes introduced an anticipatory body-suspension-control system. The previous developments of the Mercedes S-Class smart driving systems and associated object-detection sensors are listed in Table 1 and described i... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2104 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Static and extremely low-frequency (ELF) magnetic fields are encountered in hybrid technology cars. These fields are mainly due to the currents flowing through the circuits, the motor, and the battery. To determine the magnetic field levels in the passenger compartment, measurements were made in all four seats at three heights (feet, chest, and head) in various types (full or mild hybrid) and mode...

    Device-to-device (D2D) communications facilitate promising solutions for service optimization and spectrum/capacity efficiency in the Third-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) networks. A key enabler for D2D communications and proximity services (ProSe) is the device discovery process. Currently, many aggressive peer discovery methods discussed in 3GPP could induce high energy consumption. There... View full abstract»

    This article describes the application of radio flexibility for designing public protection and disaster relief (PPDR) wireless networks (NETs) in support of PPDR special needs, primary among which is information- transport resilience. It focuses further on the central role of mobile ad hoc NETs as the ground-segment element of the total architecture since the eventual solution must support rapid,... View full abstract»

    This article discusses different alternatives for sending intelligent transportation systems (ITS) messages using long-term evolution (LTE) networks. Specifically, it compares the unicast and evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (eMBMS) transmission modes by means of system-level simulations and a cost modeling analysis. The optimum configuration of the eMBMS carrier is studied for the ... View full abstract»
