Abstract

See full text

A hierarchical communication system is described whereby periodic interference can be detected and avoided utilizing constituents' computer controllers and sync signals generated in response to the interference. The use of a predictive sync signal allows radio frequency communication to be optimally timed to efficiently make use of the interference-free time within the periodic interference signal.
