Paper Abstract

This paper will review automotive applications of optical sensors at the present time and in the forseeable future. Applications described will include engine and power train management as well as more advanced concepts such as navigation and collision avoidance systems for road vehicles. Current development work at Lucas on sensors to be applied in some of these areas will be described. There will also be a discussion of the environmental problems to be overcome in the design of automotive systems and components, and the effect of these constraints on the selection of optical hardware for use in sensors.
