The possible advantages to be gained from the development of vehicle radar systems are outlined and the factors influencing the design of a suitable system are discussed. The various types of system which are commonly considered are introduced and their relative merits and associated problems are explained. The systems considered are automatic headway control, headway warning, automatic braking and pre-collision sensing. It is concluded that significant problems remain to be solved before practical automative radar can become a reality for the general motoring public.
