Minister Moore introduces new rules for radar technology
November 21, 2014 – Ottawa – Industry Canada
The radar technology in cars uses radio waves to measure the speed and distance of approaching objects. This technology is being used in the automotive industry to offer features such as adaptive cruise control, which will help drivers avoid collisions thereby making Canadian roads safer.
Industry Minister James Moore today announced changes to Canada's standard on radars, or field disturbance sensors, which will allow the latest safety features to be included in new cars sold in Canada.
Starting in 2015, select cars sold in Canada will be able to incorporate this new radar technology.
The standard aligns with similar rules in the U.S., reducing the administrative burden on automotive manufacturers.
