This should fix the problem

Crash proof cars are about to hit the street here in Australia.

Final approval for the radar CC systems have been granted by the Australian Communications Authority.

How do they work?

Does it require all cars to be fitted to be effective?

I am prepared to bet that someone manages to crash one. For example, how do they stop the laws of physics operating if you enter a bend way too fast (assuming it lets you do that)?

Basically the car has a system that works by proximity using radar then uses the brake and stability systems to slow the car.

I think Lowndesy should tell AVESCO to make this mandatory on all V8 supercars, then he may have some chance of getting past the first lap without getting punted off.

Thats pretty interesting.I wonder how it will stack up in real world road driving and all the variables that comes with it. I mean you don't want the thing braking all the time esp in Laminges case.:s5

No it wouldn't work for you


Then the car overrides what you try to do. For example you won't be able to get within a certain distance for the object in front of you.

From what I have read about the systems althought they are in the early stages of development they work reasonably well.

But they work within certain restrictive conditions. Outside of those conditions it won't help much.

The delay in Australia was about concerns on the Radar frequency being distruptive

so you're flying along, and ther light goes amber, you speed up to tailgate the guy in front of you, but MR RADAR THINGY won't let you get too close to the car in front, so it chucks the anchors out in the middle of the intersection???
s--t, i must be a really bad driver.

Yes that is exactly how it works as it doesn't know the guy you are trying to Tailgate through the intersection isn't going to stand on the brakes himself to avoid going through that amber light.

Don't laugh I have seen it happen
