    Audi's research car, the Audi A7 piloted driving concept, internally nicknamed Jack, is now driving more naturally. Jack knows how to autonomously perform all of its driving maneuvers on the expressway and has now learned how to show consideration for other road users by adapting its driving style to the situation at hand. To this end, it now passes trucks with a slightly wider lateral gap. It als... View full abstract»

    IEEE 802.11 is a working group operating under the sponsorship of the IEEE Local Area Network (LAN)/Metropolitan Area Network Standards Committee (LMSC). It is responsible for writing standards focusing on wireless LANs (WLANs). A WLAN's typical transmission range is up to 100 m. Unlicensed spectrum is generally considered, including 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 60 GHz, with a few exceptions, such as the l... View full abstract»

  • Signaling Through Scattered Vegetation: Empirical Loss Modeling for Low Elevation Angle Satellite Paths Obstructed by Isolated Thin Trees

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):22 - 28

    We propose a simple model to characterize the attenuation due to the isolated density of thin trees in an air-to-ground (satellite-to-mobile or helicopter-to-mobile) communication channel. We analyzed the effect of the mobile receiver displacement, moving from far to near the tree along the direct ray path direction for different species of trees at X band (8-12 GHz) and Ku band (12-18 GHz) freque...

    Intelligent transportation systems (ITSs) are currently under intense research and development for making transportation safer and more efficient. The development of such vehicular communication systems requires accurate models for the propagation channel. A key characteristic of these channels is their temporal variability and inherent time-changing statistics, which have a major impact on electr... View full abstract»

    Next-generation device-to-device (D2D) communication technology, in which a cellular network assists proximal users at all stages of their interaction, is rapidly developing. Previous research has thoroughly characterized D2D performance aspects from discovery to connection establishment, security, and service continuity; however, prospective D2Denabled applications and services envision highly op...

    High-speed railways (HSRs) improve the quality of rail services, yield greater customer satisfaction, and help to create socioeconomically balanced societies [1]. This highly efficient transport mode creates significant challenges in terms of investment, technology, industry, and environment. To handle increasing traffic, ensure passenger safety, and provide real-time multimedia information, a new... View full abstract»
