Radar for automotive

The fastest growing market for Radar systems is the automotive market. In the near future there will be foreseeable millions of radars on the roads, with many vehicles equipped with numerous different radars systems [1]. Moreover, authorities of the automotive industry and politics expect first autonomous driving cars by the year 2025 on highways. No longer than 1 decade later also in cities and urban areas. This immense challenging project will not be possible without an excessive cooperative sensor network, among other things (e.g. car2car and car2infrastructure communications [2] [3]), within and around the vehicle. Future Radar systems will exploit time and frequency simultaneously (intelligent signal coding) and offer higher angular resolution while the coverage will be extended (digital beamforming on receive) [4] .
