AUTOMOTIVE STATION KEEPING AND BRAKING RADARS. A REVIEW

The current automotive radar system state-of-the-art is reviewed, and it is concluded that although considerable development work remains before radar becomes a practical automotive system, significant progress has been made in the field. The use of cooperative radar breaking systems must be preceded by a detailed analysis of anticipated vehicle collision directions and obstacles. The biological effects must be evaluated before installation of such systems as standard equipment. Details are discussed of station keeping or cruise-control radar systems to aid drivers. System considerations are also set forth. A prototype braking radar which consists of 5 major parts is reported.
