  • Publication number: 20200142029
    Abstract: Object detection systems and methods are provided. An object detection system comprises a plurality of nodes, each node having a transmitter configured to transmit a radar signal as a beam, and one or more receivers configured to receive a reflected radar signal. The nodes and transmitters are arranged such that the radar beam of one transmitter at least partly overlaps with the radar beam from the transmitter at an adjacent one of the nodes. The object detection system comprises a processor configured to receive a digitised signal from each node, process the digitised signal to detect characteristics of any Doppler effects created by the movement of an object through one or more of the radar beams, compare the Doppler characteristics with Doppler signatures associated with known objects, and thereby classify the object.
