    Automotive millimetre-wave radar sensors are moving rapidly from a research and development status in the pre-production phase. The rapid progress in RF-technology, the explosion of processing speed, and decreasing prices of mm-wave components make radar more and more interesting as a consumer product. For monitoring the car's motion and surroundings (especially in the direction of motion) radar s... View full abstract»

    Improving comfort and safety is one of the major concerns of car manufacturers. Efforts have been made to realize prototypes of driver assistance, intelligent cruise control and collision avoidance systems. Those systems must be able to detect obstacles with a high reliability even under bad weather conditions and poor visibility. Decreasing prices for millimeter wave components especially for mon...

    The European Prometheus project had as two of its aims the development and evaluation of vehicle radar and lidar sensors as sources of control signals for: autonomous intelligent cruise control; and collision avoidance. The trial described arose from realisation in the European automotive industry that in designing mm wave and infra-red range-measuring sensors for use in such systems, there was a ...

    A system has been developed and is now installed in over 2000 commercial vehicles which allows a company to manage efficiently its fleet of vehicles. The system uses GPS and an axle-driven odometer to determine the location of the vehicle but, unlike many tracking systems, the data is compressed and stored on the vehicle. When the truck returns to base, a low power packet radio interface is used t... View full abstract»

    This paper concentrates on the new information technologies, called in Euro-speak telematics. The definition of telematics is telecommunications of information technology. Developments in autonomous navigation and traffic information services and how they are being integrated into vehicles are covered. The likelihood of the PC becoming part of the motor car and the consequences in terms of safety ... View full abstract»

    In the United Kingdom, drivers are advised to keep a two second gap between themselves and other vehicles even in optimal driving conditions. While drivers are not thought to have difficulty in detecting closure with a vehicle ahead, as long as the rate of change of the visual angle subtended by the lead vehicle is above threshold (greater than 0.003 radians per second), neither closure detection ...

    An active cruise control (ACC) system must be cheap, small, robust and reliable if it is to be adopted by vehicle manufacturers. Since the system also has to operate within the European and the USA allocated millimetric frequency band, 76-77 GHz, these requirements have provided significant challenges to microwave systems engineers. As a result, until fairly recently, ACC has remained an interesti... View full abstract»

  • Low cost FM-CW radar range finder

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):6/1 - 6/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (236 KB)

    This work is concerned with the use of a 27 GHz triangular FM-CW single antenna radar gun with analogue signal pre-processing together with a Matlab off-line method to extract range information from a static target. The authors conclude that FM-CW radar has the potential of being commercially used as a navigation tool for automotive and autonomous guided vehicles View full abstract»
