Electromagnetic open-guiding structures, or surface waveguides, for continuous-access guided communication (CAGC) and obstacle detection ("guided radar"), are described for use in ground transportation, such as railways, highways, and more advanced guided systems. The experimental and theoretical work at Queen's University on surface-wave devices and their application to obstacle detection are reviewed in detail. It is concluded that there is considerable promise in these techniques and that obstacle detection, in particular, deserves much more attention than it appears to have received.
