Panasonic’s advanced radar technology for next-generation traffic safety systems can detect humans and vehicles in a range of several tens of meters. This millimeter-wave radar technology allows for detecting objects outdoors in poor visibility conditions, such as night, rain, and snow, as well as against the sunlight. When used in traffic surveillance sensors located at intersections, it will help increase automotive safety by detecting pedestrians and bicycles hidden in the driver’s blind spots, according to Panasonic. The advanced radar technology is capable of detecting humans and cars simultaneously despite the fact that the human body reflects extremely weak radar signals compared with a car body.
