Govt de-licenses use of very low frequency bands for automotive industry; move aims at making connected vehicles.

Car makers can use this frequency through radar-based system and offer advanced driver assistance features like blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning.

These features are already available in advanced markets. According to a notification dated September 16, issued by the wireless planning and coordination wing of the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, the government has de-licenced use of devices or wireless microphones in the frequency bands of 36-38 MHz, 433-434.79 MHz, 302-351 kHz and 76-77 GHz.

Maruti should be the biggest beneficiary as it intends to use the bands for testing and installation of Autonomous Emergency Braking System (AEBS) in its upcoming Baleno, which will be exported to Europe and Japan

AEBS is a low-power radar-based system which detects obstacles and applies brake in emergency situations. Fitment of AEBS in passenger cars will be a required feature for better rating in the European New Car Assessment Programme and it is difficult to sell a car in that market without this system. It uses short-distance (160 m), low-power (55 dBm max) radar operating in the 76-77 GHz band.
