THE ROLE OF ADVANCED ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS IN COMMUNICATING WITH MOVING VEHICLES

The viability of methods of communicating to and from moving vehicles depends on the availability of inexpensive and reliable electronic components of advanced performance. If suitable components are available, a variety of sophisticated schemes for managing private, commercial, and public transport becomes feasible economically and technically (if not politically); possibilities include the transmission of route or hazard information to vehicles, the extraction of data from vehicles (identity, axle loading, etc.), and two-way communication for public-transport vehicles. This paper surveys the roles which may exist in traffic management for modern solid-state components such as advanced silicon integrated circuits, charge-transfer devices, surface-acoustic-wave structures, and microwave sources. Special emphasis is given to the basic problems of, firstly, establishing localized regions for propagation on a space-division-multiplex basis and, secondly, providing structures which operate, store, and detect complex codes or messages.
