Cooperative Radar-Based Localization

Microwave based measurement systems are widespread in industrial plants, due to their robustness against dust and rough weather. One of the most important tasks is to locate different objects of interest. In an industrial environment, with multiple reflective objects present, it is a demanding task for a conventional radar system to identify and track objects of interest. A way to handle this task is to equip the target objects with active radar transceivers, forming a cooperative measurement system with long-range and high-precision capability. As additional technology, semi-active modulated-reflector tags can be used for short-range localization purposes in applications with multiple objects to locate. The focus of this research is to integrate the advantages of a conventional FMCW radarsystem with the capability of simultaneous operation in the cooperative mode, as well as with modulated-reflectors, forming a novel multi-purpose radar system.
