The Radio Spectrum Policy Unit of the European Commission is launching a call for input on the review of the 24GHz decision for automotive short-range radar applications (SRR), which have been identified by the EU policy initiative eSafety as a key technology for the improvement of road safety across Europe.
EU harmonisation measures already in place made different frequency bands available – thus foreseeing a complete review of the situation in 2009. The current call for input will pave the way to a more efficient assignment and use of frequencies for SRR systems.
The long-term goal for the program is to have SRR systems available in a harmonised manner by the second quarter of 2013. Commentators say this will have a positive impact on both road safety and the economic situation in the automotive industry, therefore boosting sales for innovative security systems. Input to the call by the European Commission is welcomed until February next year.
