On-board absolute speed sensors would be very useful in automotive applications in order to perform the measurement of the speed independently of the wheel rotation. Narrow beam Doppler sensors give a good accuracy but only operate if there is a reflecting obstacle in the antenna footprint on the road. Broad beam Doppler sensors have the advantage of offering a higher probability of getting a reflected wave, but they require multiple frequencies. A novel sensor is presented. It uses a single frequency emission, which leads to low cost devices. Simulations and measurements have been carried out which show that it is particularly well adapted to high-risk situations, for instance icy or very wet road surfaces, when only a few reflecting obstacles are present. In such situations, the accuracy of the measurement is typically of the order of 0.5 per cent.
