Vehicle Multiplex Communication

Vehicle Multiplex Communication

Author: Christopher A. Lupini Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/08/2020

Multiplexing can be best discussed at three levels - vehicle, ECU or component, and IC. Within each level are partitions for software and hardware, and within each partition are divisions of functionality such as buffer size. The content in this book will help the reader to acquire a basic understanding of vehicle multiplexing systems, primarily from the passenger car and light truck viewpoint. Some discussion of heavy-duty and off-road vehicle multiplexing is presented, along with a look at industrial automation - a fast-growing multiplex field already eclipsing automotive usage.

Peddling Bicycles to America

Peddling Bicycles to America

Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/08/2020

This economic and technical history of the early American bicycle industry focuses on the period from 1876 to the beginning of World War I. It looks particularly at the life and career of the industry's most significant personality during this era, Albert Augustus Pope. After becoming enamored with English high-wheeled bicycles during a visit to the Philadelphia World's Fair in 1876, Pope soon started paying Hartford, Connecticut's Weed Sewing Machine Company to make his own brand of high-wheeler, the 'Columbia', the first to be manufactured in America in significant numbers. A decade later, Pope bought out that company, and a decade after that, Hartford's Park River was lined with five of Pope's factories. This book tells the story of the Pope Manufacturing Company's meteoric rise and fall and the growth of an industry around it.
