This paper discusses the development of a surrogate bicycle target for evaluating the effectiveness of vehicular autonomous emergency braking (AEB)/ pre-collision systems (PCSs) that uses 77-GHz radar systems in detecting bicyclists on the road. The design objective of the surrogate bicycle is to produce similar optical appearance and radar response in a 76–78 GHz band as a real bicycle selected based on its popularity (in 2014) in the United States. In addition, the surrogate bicyclist needs… CONTINUE READING
