Abstract:This research is an investigation of the requirements for an automotive, frequency modulated constant wave radar based, Parking Distance Control (PDC) system. This thesis presents the results of experiments based on the specifications for automotive ultrasound systems. The processing of the recorded data from the experiments determines requirements for digitization, processing, and compares low complexity detection algorithms. The results show that it is possible to detect single objects using low complexity detection algorithms, such as CFAR. Additional experiments were conducted with more complex scenarios compromising of multiple objects and elongated objects. The results from this show that these scenarios pose problems for a radar based PDC system. The results from the thesis provide a basis on which a prototype system can be designed for further testing.
