Paper Abstract

The implementation of an anticollision system on a car is presented. The vehicle is provided with two LIDAR systems integrated near the headlights, and a RADAR included in the calender, both used for active detection. Twelve infrared beacons have also been set up on the front part for telecommunication exchanges with surrounding vehicles or with infrastructure. An uncooled copolymer 32 X 32 FPA for passive detection has in addition been investigated for a further integration and is presented in this paper. This project is a part of the European PROMETHEUS-PROCHIP program which intends to make safer road traffic.
