ANALYSIS OF PROBLEMS IN THE APPLICATION OF RADAR SENSORS TO AUTOMOTIVE COLLISION PREVENTION. PHASE III. VOLUME II
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.
