WRC 15 approves spectrum for automotive radar:
Anti-collision mechanism to improve road safety worldwide
The World Radio Conference 2015 (WRC 15) decided that radio-frequency spectrum needed for the operation of short-range high-resolution automotive radar will be allocated in the 79 GHz frequency band.
The allocation of the 79 GHz frequency band provides a globally harmonized regulatory framework for automotive radar to prevent collisions, which will improve vehicular safety, reduce traffic accidents and will allow the automotive industry to deploy anti-collision radar devices globally.
The decision at WRC-15 culminates extensive studies on the spectrum requirement as well as sharing with incumbent radio communication services in the same frequency band.
