Automotive Radar – Status and Trends

  title={Automotive Radar – Status and Trends},
  author={Martin Schneider},
The paper gives a brief overview of automotive radar. The status of the frequency regulation for short and long range radar is summarized because of its importance for car manufacturers and their sensor suppliers. Front end concepts and antenna techniques of 24 GHz and 77 GHz sensors are briefly described. Their impact on the sensor’s field of view and on the angular measurement capability is discussed. Esp. digital beamforming concepts are considered and promising results are presented.
