RoCoCo is a cooperative study project between an industrial partner, a research team from a leading automobile manufacturer in Europe, and the European Microwave Signature Laboratory of the Space Applications Institute at Ispra. The aim was to measure in this laboratory radar backscatter from asphalt road surfaces at different ambient conditions. The experimental data are needed for the development of new technologies for improved safety systems in automobiles. Expertise gained in activities supporting the application of remote sensing techniques could be used advantageously to foster research developments of European industry.
