Experimental Study of Infrastructure Radar Modulation for Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection

Currently, radars installed on vehicles have been widely put into practical use [1]. Moreover, radars will be attached to road-side-units for safety systems in the near future. The purpose of this research is to show that 2FCW (Two-Frequency Continuous Wave) modulation is suitable as an infrastructure sensor. First, the authors indicate that 2FCW modulation is less affected by static objects by comparing FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) modulation, which is often used in radars installed on vehicles. Further, they demonstrate the performance of detecting vehicles and pedestrians by radars using 2FCW modulation. Second, they show 2FICW modulation based on 2FCW can solve a principled problem that 2FCW modulation has.
