In 2009, Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) was adopted as an updated replacement of National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 350. Under MASH, the impact severity of test level 4 (test 4-12) was increased by 56%. Test vehicle mass was increased from 17,640 lb to 22,050 lb. Impact speed was increased from 50 mph to 56 mph.

—We present new outer bounds to the individual rates and the conditions under which these bounds become tight for the symmetric Gaussian cog-nitive radio (CR) channel in the low interference gain regime. The CR transmitter is assumed to use dirty paper coding while deriving the outer bounds. The capacity of the CR channel in the low interference scenario is(More)
Very High−Speed Digital Subscriber Lines upstream transmission suffers from strong far end crosstalk (FEXT) by the shortest lines in a multiuser communication environment. This problem called " Near−Far Effect " drastically reduces the upstream capacity on the longer lines. Power control algorithms effectively handle this problem and maximize the achievable(More)
