Many different sensors and systems, from sonar to machine vision, have been installed on ground vehicles and automobiles. This paper describes the use of radar to improve driving safety and convenience. Radars are valuable sensors for all weather operation and experiments with automotive radar sensors have been conducted for over 40 years. This paper shows the advantages and disadvantages of applying microwave and millimeter wave radar to obstacle detection and collision avoidance in a roadway… 

Sensors for Distance Measurement and Their Applications in Automobiles

This chapter describes several distance measurement systems and their implementation in automobiles that allow the implementation of systems such as collision warning and autonomous intelligent cruise control.

Development of Smart Vehicle Blind Spot Detection System Based on 24 GHz Radar Sensors

A Smart Vehicle Blind Spot Detection System (VBDS) to observe the blind spot region based on ISO 17387: 2008(E) is proposed and will alert the driver automatically to ensure the driver safety and reduce road accident.

Study on reducing false targets for automotive radar

New waveform for millimeter-wave automotive anti-collision radar is proposed. It greatly improves the response characteristic of radar system and partly reduces the false alarm of the radar. The

Development of rear-end collision avoidance in automobiles

In the development of Rear-End Collision Avoidance System (RECAS), a thorough review of hardware, software, driver/human factors, and current rear-end collision avoidance systems are included.

Advanced Driving Assistance Systems for an Electric Vehicle

This paper describes the automation of a Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) and the embedded distributed architecture for implementing an Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) with haptic,

Real-time Bicycle Management System

The goal is to transform the bicycle into an intelligent and complete vehicle in order to increase the user security and comfort and at the same time encourage others to use it.

Benchmark tools for evaluating AGVs at industrial environments

The paper addresses the problem of evaluating AGVs with different degrees of autonomy by defining benchmark tools to grade the performance of each approach, and uses experiments to evaluate the potential advantages of manual-assisted driving as well as autonomous navigation against standard manual driving.

Light and Water Drops

Water drops are present throughout our daily lives. Microscopic droplets create fog and mist, and large drops fall as rain. Because of their shape and refractive properties, water drops exhibit a


System considerations for the design of radar braking sensors

The review and discussion of topics fundamental to the design of operational radar sensors for automatically activated braking systems for automobiles, including false detection and intersystem problems are discussed.
