Paper Abstract

GTRI is conducting research on the Safety Warning System (SWS), an off-the-shelf highway safety system that contains a 24 GHz motorist communications system and 24 GHz homodyne radar. This system is being evaluated to determine if it can reduce these types of farm equipment accidents. These research being conducted by GTRI on farm equipment accidents is part of a more comprehensive Federal Highway Administration research project being conducted on vehicular safety technology. The goal of this research, as it relates to farm equipment safety, is to determine if the SWS system can be used to warn both the approaching driver and farm equipment operator. Specifically, can the homodyne radar be used to warn the farm equipment driver of a motorist's approach and can the approaching driver equipped with an SWS receiver be warned of the farm equipment's presence in time to avoid a collision.
