ANALYSIS OF PROBLEMS IN THE APPLICATION OF RADAR SENSORS TO AUTOMOTIVE COLLISION PREVENTION. PHASE III, VOLUME I
The report describes the results of the third phase of an investigation of the practicality and technical feasibility of applying radar as a sensor for automatic braking systems. Hardware evaluation of a baseband system as a brake sensor is discussed, and target signatures generated by the system are presented. Analyses of the performance of different types of systems in the presence of rain are given; performance of a realistic system in minimum-radius horizontal curves is analyzed; estimates of the probability of intersystem blinding generated by multiple vehicles are given.
