Design and analysis of radar components and systems


Radar technology has recently been evolving towards patterns guaranteeing high performances for a multitude of functions, ranging from targets detection, classification, and identification to tracking, and high-accuracy localization. Nowadays, the advances in mmWave technologies and digitalization allow us to build very high-performance radar sensors that are low-cost, low-power, and of small dimension.

Multidimensional imaging radar solution is the next generation of radar technology that will fill the gap to make lifesaving real-time decisions in all application scenario. Multidimensional imaging radar leverages a Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna array for high-resolution sensing of its surroundings. It generates 3D imaging that can track multiple targets. The technology combines other dimensions, like Doppler and micro-Doppler, to bring additional information. Indoor, this technology detects people, classifies children and adults, monitors vital signs, and detects posture and position. Outdoor, it detects and tracks vehicles, obstacles, and vulnerable road users.

Design, prototyping, and validating high-resolution multidimensional mmWave imaging, radar applications allow accurate detection and classification of multiple static and/or dynamic targets indoor and outdoor. Exploiting the unique technological advances in mmWave multichannel Radar On Chips, in antenna technology and in signal modulation and processing create solutions that provide a new level of safety and robustness.
