Active safety is one of the most dynamic emerging topics in the automotive industry. Radars currently play a major role in providing sensing capabilities required to meet active safety requirements. Requirements, parameters, and characteristics of automotive radars change as a function of the operation range. The main goal of this work is to summarize… (More)
We discuss the unique requirements of automotive active safety systems which drive the challenging specifications of next-generation automotive short range radar sensors. Sensor level performance, vehicle integration, worldwide regulation, cost, and reliability are highlighted, along with possible paths towards achieving future performance metrics.
The radar signatures of automotive targets were measured from 22 to 29 GHz and 76 to 81 GHz inside an anechoic chamber using a vector network analyzer. Radar cross section maps of a sedan, truck, van, pedestrian, motorcycle, and bicycle as a function of effective radar sensor bandwidth, center frequency, and polarization are presented.
Collision Avoidance has received serious attention in the automotive research area. There are two methodologies for collision avoidance systems: Sensor-based and ITS-based. The main goal of this work is to provide a comprehensive review of both sensor-based and ITS-based collision avoidance systems. A comparative analysis between these two methodologies and… (More)
The tuning process of Fuzzy Logic Controllers (FLCs) through trial-and-error is usually a tedious and time-consuming task. The significant amount of computation imposed by current techniques used in self organized FLCs coupled with the need for a shortened development cycle in today's fast manufacturing environment, make existing methods practically… (More)
Thousands of people die every year in car accidents. Current restraint systems such as conventional seatbelts and airbags are designed to accommodate several occupant/crash scenarios and lack the capability of varying their output during the impact event. This paper introduces and demonstrates the benefits of real time control of a novel adaptive restraint… (More)
In every vehicle collision, the work-energy principle must be satisfied, i.e., the work done in stopping the driver must be equal to the driver's kinetic energy. Existing restraint systems such as airbags and seatbelts are designed to minimize injuries by smoothly absorbing the kinetic energy of the occupant during a crash event. Advanced systems are being… (More)
