by SAE InternationalJan 13, 2012

This paper has presented the results of a research project to design, develop, and test an Enhanced Emergency Locator Transmitter system that combines wireless communications and Global Positioning Systems with a network of inexpensive sensors for crash detection. Efforts to date have successfully designed and constructed a working prototype system. Successful operation of the prototype has been demonstrated in establishing a wireless web connection between the Mobile Unit and the Base Station.
