Spatial Channel Measurement and Modeling Design How-To 10/1/2001 Post a comment Interest in smart antennas for mobile communications is a relatively recent phenomena. Authors from Germany's Technische Universitt Wien discuss recent spacial channel measurement programs, along with methods for the efficient simulation of these channels.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
