New Radar Technologies for Autonomous Driving – Sensors, Algorithms, Testing
DAY3 | April 18, 2018
08:30-12:45 | Place: Conference Room


Thomas Zwick, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany
Christian Waldschmidt, University of Ulm, Germany


In the near future, the number of radar sensors in cars is expected to significantly increase. Autonomous driving will further boost this number and require new radar technologies and system concepts. This half-day workshop presents new hardware concepts including circuits, antennas and packaging as well as algorithms for future radar signal processing. In addition, the workshop will address a new but very important topic for future automotive radar: functional radar sensor testing.
