    This article discusses the positive impact that metrocell antennas with a narrow vertical beamwidth and electrical downtilt can have on heterogeneous cellular networks. Using a model of random cell placement based on a Poisson distribution, along with an innovative three-dimensional (3-D) building model that quantifies blockage due to shadowing, it is demonstrated that the network spectral efficie...

    Global System for Mobile Communications-Railway (GSM-R) is the current standard for railway voice and data communication. It provides railway-specific voice services, such as railway emergency calls (RECs), as well as the European Train Control System (ETCS), which offers in-cab signaling and automatic train protection. Despite these features and services, GSM-R has major shortcomings. Therefore, ... View full abstract»

    My first "Automotive Electronics" news column appeared in IEEE Vehicular Technology Newsletter (VT News) in August of 1974. Subsequently, I wrote four new columns every year for the next 40 years, continuing in IEEE Vehicular Technology Magazine (VTM) when VT News changed from a newsletter to a magazine. To date, I have written 160 "Automotive Electronics" columns. The average length of a column i... View full abstract»
