The authors discuss how to design OFDM signals which are suitable for both radar and communications using high-bandwidth OFDM signals. A list of constraints which the signal configuration must comply with is defined. They present a solution which satisfies the requirements for radar and allows for reliable communications. In the domain of vehicular technology, a multitude of electronic systems are currently being developed or installed to aid the driver and increase traffic safety. Among these, radar and communications play a special role: in both cases, they have a high range of up to several hundred metres, and they are very similar in nature.
