The 79 GHz Project

is an international automotive 79 GHz frequency harmonisation initiative and worldwide operating vehicular radar frequency standardisation platform

The frequency range 77 GHz to 81 GHz (79 GHz) was defined by the European Commission in 2004 as the frequency allocation for automotive short range radar systems. The initial intention and objective of this 79 GHz project is to establish and speed up the worldwide harmonised frequency allocation for vehicular radars in that frequency range.

                                      THE PROJECT ENDED IN JUNE 2014 
              The 79 GHz Final Workshop was held in Brussels  (July 10, 2014) 
                                         at the European Commission (agenda)

                             Beaulieu 25 (BU25) avenue de Beaulieu 25, 1160 Auderghem, Brussels
                                                         

The project has two main workscopes to achieve this:

Country specific activities

Country specific activities

At the beginning of the project the 79 GHz radar equipment is only authorized
in the 27 EC member states,in most of the further 21 CEPT countries, in Singapore and Australia.
In all other countries the operation of 79 GHz radar devices is not possible due
to the lack of any regulatory framework for this frequency band.

Global Automotive Radio Regulations Expert Group

Global Automotive Radio Regulations Expert Group

MOTIVATION:

The automotive industry needs global frequency harmonization. Radiocommunication systems are more and more used by the automotive industry to equip cars. Radar, keyless entry, TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System), Car-to-Car communications are among all these systems.

Global harmonization is key for car manufacturers to install such systems in the car. For that, there is a crucial need for a global automotive group with legitimacy to support and drive the automotive frequency regulations on a worldwide level, a group that must be at the same eye level as other organizations (e.g. ITU-R) or interest groups (e.g. CRAF).

GARREG: Global Automotive Radio Regulations Expert Group.

CLEPA is the European association of automotive suppliers and counts 90 members among the world's most prominent suppliers of car parts / systems.

OICA is the International organization of motor vehicle manufacturers.

Following the 79GHz CSA project proposal, both organizations decided to create a joint task group called GARREG, the Global Automotive Radio Regulations Expert Group.

  • Kick-off meeting on October 19th, 2012
  • Discussions on the Terms of Reference and Rules of Procedure
  • Chairman: Sylvain GERMAINE, TRW
  • Secretariat: Markus RICHTER, DAIMLER

IARREG

TERMS OF REFERENCE

The Global Automotive Radio Regulations Experts’ Group shall promote the interests of the Worldwide Automotive Industry regarding:

  • Regulatory issues on radio based automotive systems and components;
  • The use of the appropriate harmonized frequency bands for radio based automotive application within the existing and future regulatory environment;
  • The maintenance of appropriate existing frequency bands

The group is open to all the Automotive Manufacturers’ and Suppliers’ Associations members and external Experts could, case by case, be invited.
