The current document is a part of an effort of the Active Safety Systems Committee, Active Safety Systems Sensors Task Force whose objectives are to:
a. Identify the functionality and performance you could expect from active safety sensors
b. Establish a basic understanding of how sensors work
c. Establish a basic understanding of how sensors can be tested
d. Describe an exemplar set of acceptable requirements and tests associated with each technology
e. Describe the key requirements/functionality for the test targets
f. Describe the unique characteristics of the targets or tests
This document will cover items (a) and (b).
This SAE Surface Vehicle Information Report is intended to provide comprehensive reference and background information pertaining to sensors used by automotive active safety systems.
