FIELD EVALUATION OF THE RADAR CONTROL SYSTEMS (RCS) RADAR ANTI-COLLISION WARNING SYSTEM. FINAL REPORT
The purpose of this study was the evaluation of a radar-based anti-collision system developed by Radar Control Systems, Inc. (RCI). The tests were divided into two categories: quantitative and qualitative. The quantitative test involved the verification of the system's displayed speed, range and closing rate; system's sensitivity to various vehicle types, i.e., motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians; and the system's ability to target through environmental conditions (such as rain). Qualitative tests were under normal driving conditions on approximately 1300 miles of interstate highways, 275 miles of major arterial roadways, 275 miles of minor arterial roadways, 250 miles of residential roadways, 250 miles of rural roadways, and 300 miles of other roads (i.e., dirt, parking lots, etc.).
