Abstract

The SMILER project assessed the feasibility and performance of short range microwave links (below 500 m) for road to vehicle communications, vehicle to vehicle communications and anti-collision radar. The work programme included surveys of the state of the art and frequency allocations, evaluation of short range road vehicle links in the 1-10 GHz band, and comparison of centimetric microwave links with other technologies. Feasibility studies concerned a low cost front end for anti-collision radar, evaluation of communication at millimetric frequency bands, and a unified microwave link designed for low cost components.
