Baudot, Jean-Maurice-Émile (1845–1903)




Jean-Maurice-Emile Baudot
French electrical engineer who devised a telegraph code that used the presence or absence of an electrical pulse, rather than the short and long pulses of the Morse code. Baudot also invented a distributor system which permitted several messages to be transmitted along the same wire. The baud is named after him.
