The first commercial automotive radars are designed for blind-spot detection, collision warning, and automatic cruise control. These radars, however, could be used for other applications as well, such as road condition classification,
vulnerable road user detection, and data transfer from ubiquitous sensors or tags. This paper discusses automotive radar for road condition classification at 24 GHz and shows results of semipassive and active radar transponders at 77 GHz that could be used as ubiquitous sensors or tags in traffic applications.
