Introduction to automotive FMCW Radar Technologies : Using Texas Instruments mmWave AWR sensor series

University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad signalbehandling

Abstract: The goal of the following thesis is to transfer radar basic theory in a practical work using Texas Instrument’s mmWave radar series. The range of practical applications for FMCW radars has increased, for example in automotive sector. Understanding the basics of radar mathematics in a simplified way, as well as the transfer from theory to practical work is important for any engineer working on radar projects. Even if the theory is known, the way from a theory to a running system can be hard, facing several problems, because the reality is limited. In two experiments, data from the radar is collected while cars are crossing the observation area of the radar.The data is then used to count the number of vehicles passing the observation area and to estimate the movement of the objects in the field of view.
