MULTI-PURPOSE HIGHWAY COMMUNICATIONS BY INDUCTION RADIO

INSTALLATION OF SPECIALLY DESIGNED COAXIAL CABLE AND SUPPLEMENTARY ELEMENTS WITHIN THE HIGHWAY RIGHT-OF-WAY WAS SUGGESTED. USED WITH A MULTIPLICITY OF CARRIER FREQUENCIES, THE INSTALLATION WOULD PERMIT VOICE, TELEPRINTER, FACSIMILE , DATA TRANSMISSION, TELEVISION, REMOTE CONTROL OR OTHER SIGNALS TO BE CARRIED SIMULTANEOUSLY. LATERALLY, TRANSMISSION RANGE BY INDUCTION RADIO CAN BE RESTRICTED SUBSTANTIALLY TO THE RIGHT-OF-WAY WIDTH. SUCH A SYSTEM ALSO CAN BE INTERCONNECTED WITH OTHER COMMUNICATION FACILITIES TO EXPAND ITS USEFULNESS. AS NEW ROADS ARE BUILT, SUCH A SYSTEM COULD BE INCLUDED AT LOW COST. IN COUNTRIES WITH LIMITED INTERCITY COMMUNICATIONS FACILITIES AND WITH NEW HIGHWAYS PROJECTED TO CONNECT MAJOR CITIES, SUPPLEMENTARY COAXIAL CABLES MAY BE INSTALLED WITH THE ROADWAY SERVICE CABLE TO PROVIDE TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH CHANNELS. COSTS OF LAYING THESE CABLES DURING HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION WOULD BE LOW IN COMPARISON TO OTHER CABLE INSTALLATION METHODS. ALL EQUIPMENT IS ON THE RIGHT-OF-WAY AND IS EASILY ACCESSIBLE FOR MAINTENANCE AND SERVICING. IN MANY COUNTRIES, NEW HIGHWAYS OFTEN FOLLOW STRAIGHT COURSE OVER LONG STRETCHES BETWEEN TOWNS AND VILLAGES WHERE NO TELEPHONES OR SERVICE STATIONS ARE LOCATED. USE OF VEHICLE-CARRIED INDUCTION RADIO -TELEPHONE EQUIPMENT OR INTERCONNECTION WITH CONVENTIONAL TWO-WAY RADIO SYSTEMS WILL ENABLE COMMUNICATION WITH ROADSIDE CONTROL POINTS OF POLICE STATIONS IN EVENT OF BREAKDOWN, ACCIDENT OR OTHER DIFFICULTY.
