If you have ever rented the movie Tucker, you would know why there were only a handful of major automobile corporations in the 1950's to 1970's. Prior to that, the trend for car manufacturing was an open playing field with companies such as LaSalle, Willy's Overland, Packard, and others.

Electronics technology is contributing heavily to the automotive industry with ICs for the DC-DC conversion utilized in the creation of voltages suitable for the central processor to enable actuators and to process the signals coming from the electronic sensors. This implies that ICs can be integrated on a large scale into modern cars and this process ...

Physical quantities are represented mathematically by numbers indicating their amount. Depending on whether the quantity is discrete or continuous, integers, rational numbers, or real numbers are used. Quantities such as the complex frequency, s, require complex numbers. All of these numbers, however, are incomplete in themselves in that they do not ...

Antennas are a critical part of the RF signal chain, that's not news. As the last stage on the transmit side, and the first stage on the receive side, a system's performance depends to a large degree on an antenna's ability to get the PA's signal out, or to capture that minuscule ambient RF energy. The rest of the signal chain, low noise amplifiers, ...

Autonomous vehicle operation has no choice other than to have government involvement. Like a motorist taking to the road, an autonomous vehicle will have to adhere to a set of rules and boundaries. It will have to think like a human, or better. This in itself could be a problem according to Elon Musk as stated in this excerpt:
