Radar interferometers provide a cost-effective radar architecture to achieve enhanced angle accuracy for enhanced target tracking. Presenting a comprehensive understanding of various radar interferometer architectures, Angle of Arrival Estimation Using Radar Interferometry aims to quantify interferometer angle estimation accuracy by developing a general understanding of various radar interferometer architectures and presenting a comprehensive understanding of the effects of radar-based measurement errors on angle-of-arrival estimation. The interferometer architectures described include a basic digital interferometer, a monopulse interferometer, an orthogonal interferometer and signal processing algorithms. By exploring interferometry and beyond, this book offers a unique perspective and an in depth look at the derivation of angle error equations for a radar interferometer as affected not only by additive noise but by other error effects such as multipath, glint, and spectral distortion. As such this book is primarily directed toward tracking radars but will also discuss imaging applications as well.
Driver information and assistance systems have emerged as an integral part of modern road vehicles in order to support the driver while driving. They make use of the newest information technologies in order to enhance driver awareness, safety and comfort, and thereby avoiding driver errors and accidents. Driver Adaptation to Information and Assistance Systems brings together recent work by the Marie-Curie Initial Training Network ADAPTATION. The project has studied drivers' behavioural adaptation to these new technologies from an integrative perspective working under a joint conceptual theoretical framework of behavioural adaptation that can be used to generate research hypotheses about how drivers will adapt to information and assistance systems and to derive guidelines for the design and deployment of such systems. The book aims to provide the reader with a better understanding of drivers' adaptation processes over time in response to information and assistance system use at different levels (energetic, cognitive and motivational levels); an appreciation of the impact of specificities of drivers population on technology use and skill acquisition; insights on the effects of system functionality, design and reliability as important system characteristics influencing drivers' adaptation; and recommendations on research methods and appropriate tools to investigate adaptation processes.
This third and final volume in the Principles of Modern Radar series brings all the fundamentals and advanced techniques of the prior volumes to their logical conclusion by presenting the applications of radar. This unique book provides in-depth discussions of the most important areas in current radar practice, serving primarily radar practitioners and advanced graduate students. For those needing to become experts in an advanced technology or application area, Radar Applications should be the foundation of their research before they tackle in-depth, single topic advanced books and literature. These advanced books are suggested at the end of each chapter to guide readers toward the best published works. Principles of Modern Radar: Radar Applications provides concise descriptions of the purposes, principal issues, and radar methods found in a wide variety of current radar types with military, commercial, and civilian uses. These types of radar include continuous wave (CW) radar, weather and air traffic control, pulse Doppler, fire control, ground moving target indication, and unconventional applications such as materials and ground penetrating radar. This book combines the best attributes of edited and single-author references. It draws on the expertise of authors from academia and industry, active in both teaching and ongoing research. These specialists provide greater depth and experience over the broad range of radar topics than could any single author. As with the entire Principles of Modern Radar series, this book was community reviewed by experts from around the world for coherence and consistency.
As sensors and actuators are normally not (and have not been) treated in academic curricula as a subject in its own right; many students and current professionals often find themselves limited in their knowledge and dealing with topics and issues based on material they may have never encountered. Until now. This book brings sensors, actuators and interfaces out of obscurity and integrates them for multiple disciplines including electrical, mechanical, chemical, and biomedical engineering. Real world cases, worked examples, and problem sets with selected answers provide both fundamental understanding and how industry develops sensor systems. Students and professionals from any of these disciplines will easily learn the foundational concepts and then be able to apply them to cross-discipline requirements. The idea is simple. A sensor system in general is made of three components: 1.Inputs (sensors) 2.Outputs (actuators) 3.Processor (the unit to which the inputs and outputs are connected and performs all, or the most, tasks needed to interface them). Sensors, Actuators, and their Interfaces focuses on the broad area of detection, outlining and simplifying the understanding of theory behind sensing and actuation. It is an invaluable textbook for undergraduate and graduate level courses, as well as a reference for professionals who were never afforded the opportunity to take an introductory course.
Resilience, Security & Risk in Transport aims to provide engineering professionals working in, or with an interest in, the transport sector with nine papers which address critical aspects of safety and cyber security. The need to consider security in the planning, design, build and operations of all modes of transport, vehicles and infrastructure is recognised, but the scope and scale of work needed to achieve acceptable levels of risk is not fully understood. This emerging topic area, in relation to transport, will broaden the range of expertise that engineers and technologists need to apply to vehicles and infrastructure. To inform this debate, this 64-page IET Transport Sector publication on resilience, security and risk in transport provides technical papers that highlight the complexity of our transport systems and infrastructure. The papers describe how the convergence of safety and security is at the heart of keeping transport resilient to internal and external threats and system failures. Resilience, Security & Risk in Transport covers the following topics: Protecting critical infrastructure; Cyber-security towards vehicle automation; Process safety and cyber security convergence; Intelligent buildings; Vetronics survivability strategy; Use of formal requirements; Parallel software refactoring; Certification of autonomous systems; Maritime cyber security.
Electromagnetic Field Standards and Exposure Systems addresses the need to establish measurement standards for electromagnetic fields for the conditions and accuracy of results. This book provides a review of fundamental properties of electromagnetic fields and the simple antennas that can generate and receive such fields. The main focus of this book is dedicated to the analysis of the accuracy of measurements and field standards using a range of radiating structures. Electromagnetic Field Standards and Exposure Systems covers the broader fields of measurements in telecommunications, radio navigation, radio astronomy, bioscience, and free ranging EM radiation and helps to develop the following measurement standards: proper calibration of the measuring instrument; external environmental factors that affect accuracy; competence and training of the instrument operator.

SysML is a tailored version of the unified modelling language (UML) that meets the needs of today's systems engineering professional. SysML for Systems Engineering, 2nd Edition: A model-based approach provides a thorough introduction to the language and considers how best to apply it to projects and businesses using model-based systems engineering (MBSE). This new edition of this popular text has been fully updated to reflect SysML 1.3, the latest version of the standard, and the discussion has been extended to show the power of SysML as a tool for systems engineering in an MBSE context. Beginning with a thorough introduction to the concepts behind MBSE, and the theoretical aspects and syntax of SysML, the book then describes how to implement SysML and MBSE in an organisation, and how to model real projects effectively and efficiently, illustrated using an extensive case study. Topics covered include: Model-based systems engineering; SysML and systems Modelling; SysML diagrams; Process modelling with SysML; Modelling requirements with SysML; Modelling architectures with SysML; Realising MBSE with SysML. SysML for Systems Engineering, 2nd Edition: A model-based approach is an essential introduction to the implementation of MBSE using SysML for research-based and practising systems engineers, managers and students, systems architects, project managers, software engineers, process engineers, and enterprise architects.
