Abstract

"The material presented here explains the electronics of a magnetic guidance control system. The system is based on magnets embedded in the center of the roadway. If a vehicle passes near a magnet, fluxgate magnetometers sense the presence of the magnets and guidance pulses are developed and processed. The end result is a visual output which indicates the direction the driver must steer the vehicle for proper positioning on the roadway. The paper presents a solution to the detection problem caused by the sensor output being a function of the earth's field as well as the field of the guidance magnets. Specific circuits and component values are developed for the circuit which solve the above problem and for all other circuits used in the system"--Abstract, page ii.
