79GHz


current discussions and initiatives are being promoted by the CSA 79GHz project. In Japan, the 79GHz band is now regulated while the 500


MHz allocation in frequency band 77GHz is still in discus- sion. A positive outcome is expected from countries like Hong Kong and Korea, where the Korea’s National Radio Research Agency (RRA) is preparing to amend the legis- lation procedure to accept 79GHz. 79GHz project had a successful meeting with Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission (NBTC): the Thai Automotive Industry Association (TAIA) is expected to sub- mit a petition to NBTC with requests to regulate 79 GHz.


GARREG: GLOBAL AUTOMOTIVE RADIO REGULATIONS EXPERT GROUP. Global harmonisation is a key for car manufacturers to install the previously mentioned systems in the car, such as tire pres- sure monitoring system (TPMS) and car-to-car communica- tions. A global automotive group must support automotive frequency regulations on a worldwide level. In the context of the 79 GHz project, the CLEPA (the European associa- tion of automotive suppliers) and OICA (the International organization of motor vehicle manufacturers) organisations


therefore decided (October 2012) to create a joint task group called GARREG, the Global Automotive Radio Regulations Expert Group. GARREG supports the promotion of the interests of the Worldwide Automotive Industry regarding the regulatory issues on radio based automotive systems and components, the use of the appropriate harmonised fre- quency bands for radio based automotive application within the existing and future regulatory environment and, finally, the maintenance of appropriate existing frequency bands. So looking forward to the new developments required for


enhanced applications, a wide range of actions are in progress enabling a higher level of safety in the cars of the future.

The SwiftGate™


was designed for highway use. Substantial in size, this highly visible


traffic gate with LED lighting sends a clear message that a lane is closed. The gate has been crash tested to NCHRP 350 requirements and is accepted by the FHWA. Tested and proven in the most adverse environmental conditions, this gate is there to last.
