March 23rd, 2013 by

Racing is an exciting sport, but it can be pretty dangerous. People are always looking for ways to make it safer, and recently, Pratt & Miller have developed a new rear-facing radar system that will be a big boon to the safety of all racers. Let us here at McCluskey Automotive, your home for buy here pay here Cincinnati, tell you more about it.

The system was debuted this past weekend at the 12 Hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing. The radar is actually sort of complicated, so we here at used cars Cincinnati will let the experts explain:

“The system uses a rear-facing radar sensor to track up to 32 objects, and runs on a custom-built Linux PC with a Core i3 CPU,” said Chris Hammond, Embedded Systems Engineer for Pratt & Miller. “With a momentary glance the driver knows how many cars are following, how far back each one is, their closing speeds, and whether or not they are probably a faster class.”

If you’re interested in learning more, they actually released a video from the point of view of the radar!
