Workshop on New Component Technologies for Vehicular Radar Applications at the IEEE IMS 2009
Sprache des Titels:
For a long time radar systems were only used for military systems and for civil aviation. One major reason for the limited application scenarios were the high costs involved with these systems. Nowadays the application scenarios are much broader. They range from location-aware smart-sensor systems for industrial applications to automotive systems for enhanced car safety. The recent advances in semiconductor technology have opened new mass-market potentials for radar systems. This workshop will give insights to several aspects of industrial and automotive radar systems. The topics covered during this workshop span from sub-component design to application scenarios. Fully integrated radar frontends in silicon technologies will be shown. Furthermore, challenges and solutions for the integration of these transceiver ICs into complete systems will be addressed. Another important aspect for the complete system is the antenna design, which will be covered by a separate talk. In addition, examples for modern industrial and automotive radar systems will be shown.
