The invention relates to a method for wrong-way driver detection. The device is receiving signals of other road users. Those signals are processed to identify wrong-way driving of any road user. Alerts can be signaled to the driver, semi- or fully autonomous vehicle and distributed to any other road user.

Die Erfindung betrifft eine Vorrichtung zur Geisterfahrererkennung auf einer Straße (10), wobei die Vorrichtung (24) dazu ausgelegt ist, ein von einem die Straße (10) entlang fahrenden Kraftfahrzeug (20) ausgehendes Signal mittels einer mobilen Empfangseinheit (26) zu erfassen und mittels einer Analyseeinrichtung (28) auf der Grundlage des empfangenen Signals eine Ausrichtung (22) des Kraftfahrzeugs (20) bezüglich der Straße (10) zu ermitteln und die ermittelte Ausrichtung (22) mit einer vorgegebenen Fahrtrichtung (18) zu vergleichen. Falls die Ausrichtung (22) entgegen der Fahrtrichtung (18) weist, wird ein Erkennungssignal erzeugt. Die Vorrichtung ist dazu ausgelegt ein solches Signal mittels der Empfangseinheit (26) entlang der Verlaufsrichtung der Straße (10) zu erfassen.

I wrote my diploma thesis about phase noise measurement near the carrier. Even more than a decade later the topic is still actual and critical, because phase noise influences the accuracy of our communication systems. It makes a difference in how good your smartphone works in the high frequency range e.g. Wi-Fi and cellular communication. This gets even more important when applied in critical system devices.

Earth is currently accommodating about 7 billion people. Caused by our habits and living, we would need two of them to remain in balance. The United Nations predict humanity to grow up to 11 billion people in 2100. Therefore, it is time to reconsider our habits, alliances and politics.

Challenged during an international authorship meeting with our world's elite in 2015, one of our founding members was invited to analyze current shortcomings and rethink our current mechanisms of national and international politics.
