Video-based detection can struggle to provide adequate support in all environmental conditions. In some circumstances, heavy precipitation (rain, hail, snow or fog) can severely degrade its performance. Radar works in the non-visible spectrum and is able to provide a long-range detection and monitoring capability in all light and weather conditions.
