The new Collision-Avoidance Radar System made it's debut at the 12 hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing.

"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."

The radar can detect cars even with poor visibility, and it uses easy-to-distinguish symbols for the driver to identify the proximity and closing speed of nearby racecars using different colors.

Would be cool to see this in production Chevrolet vehicles.

My collision avoidance system is this:
Drive faster than everyone on the road so I only have to worry about threats from one direction: out front.

Why else do you think I need a "sleeper" sedan for a daily driver ???? :D

I have a heavy right foot and thankfully never have to check blind spots due my heavy foot :D

Seriously though this is tech I can see being available within the next few years, maybe starting with Cadillac and slowly working it's way down to the cheaper GM vehicles.
