This is a joint chapter for the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.

October 24 talk is postponed

The MIMO Radar talk originally scheduled for October 24, 2017 has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule at a later date.


Radar not only has found widespread application in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) but also is one of the key technologies to enable environmental perception in autonomous driving. Compared with LiDAR and camera, radar technology provides reliable measurements of range, velocity and angle information of obstacles surrounding vehicle in all kinds of weather conditions. Unlike the traditional phased-array radar system which transmits via its antenna array a single waveform with different phase shift, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar can transmit multiple waveforms that may be chosen freely. As compared to traditional radar system with the same number of transmit and receive antennas, MIMO radar achieves significantly improved spatial resolution by exploiting waveform diversity. Due to its advantages, MIMO radar technology has been widely used in designing millimeter-wave radar sensors for ADAS and self-driving cars.
