FM/CW RADAR WITH HIGH RESOLUTION IN RANGE AND DOPPLER; APPLICATION FOR ANTI-COLLISION RADAR FOR VEHICLES

A large portion of the traffic accidents on motorways and other high speed highways are rear-end collisions caused by improper estimation of the safety interval which is necessary between two vehicles. The development of an anticollision system which consists essentially of a radar sensor using the fm/cw principle, and a warning computer (microprocessor) is reported. Contrary to other measurement procedures, such as infrared or ultrasonic measurement, the radar warning system is fully operational even under adverse weather conditions (rain, fog, snowfall).
