TOMSK, November 25. / Scientists of Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics /TUSUR/ have developed a compact radar sensor of new generation, thanks to which you can create high-precision radar the size of a smartphone. This was reported today by the press service of the University.
“Developed by scientists at Tomsk University, sensors together with data of the cameras will provide fully autonomous driving in all weather conditions and at any time of the day. Sensors can be used in robotics, while creating autopilot systems for cars and unmanned aerial vehicles,” - said the press service.
According to the University, the invention differs from existing analogues with small size and high recognition accuracy of the environment. According to Andrey Geltser, the head of the project, there is a rigid connection between the antenna size of a radar and discrimination - the ability to “distinguish” two adjacent objects.
“We can make a radar the size of a smartphone thanks to its own progressive signal processing algorithms. Unlike today's commonly used approaches, our invention allows to reduce the size of the radar in 7-10 times while maintaining high characteristics of the resulting images,” he noted.
The University added that the use of the sensor allows obtaining the most complete picture of the situation concerning the vehicle using just one channel. “The sensor can be flat, which allows to embed radar in the elements of the cover”, - said the press service. The device has already been pre-tested, the technology is ready for implementation. It was presented at a special exposition of the “Army-2015” forum held in Moscow from June 16 to 19.
