Title:Intelligent Radar Sensing for Smart Drones and Autonomous Driving
Abstract: The recent emerge of autonomous unmanned systems, including drones and self-driving cars, have been generating new opportunities and challenges for advanced sensing solutions. mmWave radar has been known as one of the most important sensing devices as part of the perception packages, along with Lidar and Camera. In this talk, I will present the recent development in commercial radar systems, as well as the applications in drones and automotive industries. A “thinking outside of the box” approach to understanding intelligent radar systems, in comparison with other sensors and solutions, will also be shared in the presentation.
