AUTOMATIC BRAKING BY RADAR
A braking system developed by AutoStop Corp. uses doppler-generated signals to reduce the stopping distance of a vehicle in danger of collision. Actuation of controls to achieve deceleration is accomplished by two vacuum bellows, one mechanically linked to the brake pedal, another linked to throttle and accelerator. Braking action is initiated by the driver. The system discriminates between objects which present danger of collision and false targets such as traffic in adjacent lanes and signposts.
