Abstract: A front-end circuit includes a primary circuit and a diversity circuit, the primary circuit includes transmission paths 51 and 52 for transmitting a signal in a band A and in a band B, respectively. Transmission and reception of a signal in the band B are performed by a TDD system in the transmission path 52. The diversity circuit includes a switch, and reception paths 53 and 54 that receive a signal in the band A and in the band B, respectively. When reception signals in the band A and in the band B are simultaneously transmitted, and when a reception signal in the band A and a transmission signal in the band B are simultaneously transmitted, the switch causes the diversity antenna and each of the reception path 53 and the reception path 54 to be in a conductive state.

Abstract: A radar ECU 13 gives priorities based on predicted collision times TTC and priorities based on relative distances D to all moving objects (S13), and selects 4 (four) moving objects in ascending order of the predicted collision times TTC (S14). The radar ECU 13 selects 5 (five) in ascending order of the relative distances D among the moving objects other than the moving object selected at S14 (S15). The radar ECU 13 transmits object information on the moving objects selected at S13 and S14 to a driving support ECU 20 (S16). The driving support ECU 20 performs various driving support controls based on the transmitted object information.
