PhD Automotive Radar

PhD Automotive Radar

Published Deadline Location
31 May 31 Aug Delft

Job description

We have the ambition to design and validate innovative methods to image environment around a car using radars. Radar images are intrinsically different from lidar or optical images due to lower resolutions. Increase of the image resoltuion could be achieved via fusion of the data coming from multiple radar sensors.

Such fusion is associated with a number of research questions like radar units synchronization, combination of mono-static and bi-static imaging modalities as well as resolving mutual interference issue.

You will work in the joint project between NXP and TUD DIRAc(Distributed High-Resolution Automotive Radar for Autonomous and Secure Mobility ). You will investigate automotive radar networks and develop innovative signal processing and imaging algorithms. You will be also responcible for

  • Experimentally verifying methods developed with short-range radars;
  • Preparing and writing all project deliverables within the project;
  • Presenting research results at the conferences and in journals.

You will work in the Microwave Sensing Signals and Systems (MS3) research group at the Department of Microelectronics (see radar.tudelft.nl). The group has extensive research facilities and track record on the full pipeline of microwave and radar sensing, from hardware development to radar signal processing and methods for automatic object classification. 

Specifications

Department

Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three disciplines - electrical engineering, mathematics and computer science. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make future-proof. We are also working on a world in which humans and computers reinforce each other. We are mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. There is plenty of room here for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1,100 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
