Abstract:

AN INNOVATIVE OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM BASED ON A RAIL-GUIDED PROPELLER-DRIVEN POD CONTAINING A MICROWAVE RADAR SENSOR IS PROPOSED. THE SENSOR POD WILL TRAVEL A FEW MILES AHEAD OF THE HIGH SPEED TRAIN OR MAGLEV VEHICLE, DETECT POTENTIAL OBSTACLES, AND ENACT AN APPROPRIATE WARNING OR AVOIDANCE PROCEDURE. THE PROPOSED OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM HAS MANY HIGHLY DESIRABLE FEATURES INCLUDING: A VERY LOW UNIT COST, DESIGN SIMPLICITY, OPERATIONAL SIMPLICITY, AND EXCEPTIONAL RELIABILITY. THE OBSTACLE DETECTION SYSTEM CAN OPERATE IN ALL WEATHER CONDITIONS AND AT VEHICLE SPEEDS RANGING FROM 250 KMPH TO OVER 500 KMPH.
