Abstract:
This thesis reports initial experimental results that provide the foundation for low-THz radar imagery for outdoor scenarios as expected in automotive sensing. The requirements for a low-THz single imaging radar sensor are outlined. The imaging capability of frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar operating at 150 GHz is discussed. A comparison of experimental images of on-road and off- road scenarios made by a 150 GHz FMCW radar and a reference 30 GHz stepped frequency radar is made, and their performance is analysed.
