With radar, even the humblest compact car will see through fog, brake on its own, and track other vehicles hundreds of meters ahead. Today's systems can dramatically reduce your risk of rear-ending someone else's car, and when most cars have such radars, they will also be much less likely to rear-end you. Once every vehicle on the road is able to sense and avoid others, there'll be no reason why they won't be able to negotiate tailing distances among themselves. Eventually, they might even be… 


Externalities of road traffic include congestion, accidents, conception of scare space. One of the measures to control these externalities are by Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). Clutter is

Rear lights vehicle detection for collision avoidance

An automated algorithm for detection of preceding vehicles is proposed, based on the detection of rear vehicle lights, which combines color and radial symmetry cues while the threshold is dynamically adapted.

On a Variant of the Mobile Observer Method

This variant of the mobile observer method is comparable in accuracy with the stationary observer method even at lower flow rates, thus enabling faster and more accurate traffic maps and traffic routing applications.

This paper proposes the use of Coded- Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (C-OFDM) to detect a large number of vehicles on the road. The C-OFDM technique enables a high doppler tolerance over

Daytime Preceding Vehicle Brake Light Detection Using Monocular Vision

A vision-based daytime brake light detection system using a driving video recorder, which tends to be widespread used, and can effectively detect brake lights at daytime, showing its good feasibility in real-world environments.

Adaptive Scheduling in Intelligent Transportation Systems

It is concluded that the approach studied in the thesis can guarantee a high utility provided that the complexity of the optimization is reduced as thenumber of involved vehicles increases.

OFDM Radar Algorithms in Mobile Communication Networks

OfDM-based radar has been suggested several times independently in the last decade, but many important questions remain unanswered, so one solution is to use OFDM waveforms, which nowadays are commonly used in communications standards already.

Mobile Edge Computing-Based Vehicular Cloud of Cooperative Adaptive Driving for Platooning Autonomous Self Driving

The Mobile Edge Computing-based vehicular cloud of Cooperative Adaptive Driving (CAD) approach is proposed to avoid shockwaves efficiently in platoon driving and demonstrates that CAD approach outperforms the compared approaches in number of shockwaves, average vehicle velocity, and average travel time.

Platoon-Based Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control for Achieving Active Safe Driving Through Mobile Vehicular Cloud Computing

The cooperative adaptive driving (CAD) approach that consists of three contributions: cooperative vehicle platooning (CVP), shockwave-avoidance driving (SAD), and adaptive platoon synchronization (APS) outperforms the compared approaches in number of shockwaves, average affection range of shock waves, average vehicle velocity, and average travel time.

Radar Spectrum Engineering and Management: Technical and Regulatory Issues

A number of possible approaches to the nature of the spectrum congestion problem from a radar perspective are described, and these include improved transmitter spectral purity, passive radar, and intelligent, cognitive approaches that dynamically optimize spectrum use.
