  • Publication number: 20190271776
    Abstract: A radar system has different modes of operation. In a method for operating the radar system, at least one of one or more transmitters are configured to transmit modulated continuous-wave radio signals, while at least one of one or more receivers are configured to receive radio signals. The received radio signals include the transmitted radio signals transmitted by the one or more transmitters and reflected from objects in the environment. The method further includes selectively modifying an operational parameter of at least one of the transmitters or at least one of the receivers. The selected operational parameter is modified to meet changing operational requirements of the radar sensing system.

  • Patent number: 10261179
    Abstract: A radar system has different modes of operation. In one mode, the radar operates as a single-input, multiple output (SIMO) radar system utilizing one transmitted signal from one antenna at a time. Codes with known excellent autocorrelation properties are utilized in this mode. At each receiver the response after correlating with various possible transmitted signals is measured in order to estimate the interference that each transmitter will represent at each receiver. The estimated effect of the interference from one transmitter to a receiver that correlates with a different code is used to mitigate the interference. In another mode, the radar operates as a multi-input, multiple-output (MIMO) radar system utilizing all the antennas at a time. Interference cancellation of the nonideal cross-correlation sidelobes when transmitting in the MIMO mode are employed to remove ghost targets due to unwanted sidelobes.

  • Publication number: 20190094353
    Abstract: A radar system processes signals in a flexible, adaptive manner to determine range, Doppler (velocity) and angle of objects in an environment. The radar system processes the received signal to achieve different objectives depending on one or more of a selected range resolution, a selected velocity resolution, and a selected angle of arrival resolution, as defined by memory requirements and processing requirements. The system allows improved resolution of range, Doppler and/or angle depending on the memory requirements and processing requirements. The system also adapts to changing environmental conditions including interfering radio signals.

  • Publication number: 20180231656
    Abstract: A radar sensing system for a vehicle has multiple transmitters and receivers on a vehicle. The transmitters are configured to transmit radio signals which are reflected off of objects in the environment. There are one or more receivers that receive the reflected radio signals. Each receiver has an antenna, a radio frequency front end, an analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and a digital signal processor. The transmitted signals are based on spreading codes generated by a programmable code generation unit. The receiver also makes use of the spreading codes generated by the programmable code generation unit. The programmable code generation unit is configured to selectively generate particular spreading codes that have desired properties.

  • Publication number: 20180231652
    Abstract: A radar sensing system for a vehicle includes a transmitter configured for installation and use on a vehicle and able to transmit radio signals. The radar sensing system also includes a receiver and a processor. The receiver is configured for installation and use on the vehicle and is able to receive radio signals that include transmitted radio signals reflected from objects in the environment. The processor samples the received radio signals to produce a sampled stream. The processor processes the sampled stream such that the sampled stream is correlated with various delayed versions of a baseband signal. The correlations are used to determine an improved range, velocity, and angle of targets in the environment.
