Abstract

The paper introduces the concept of Multiple Input-Multiple Output (MIMO) radar or sonar arrays for short-range, high-resolution sensing in vehicular applications. The use of a MIMO architecture, which is becoming increasingly popular in this field, is selected to reduce the amount of physical elements in the array needed for beamforming, but also to allow signal processing approaches for forming narrow beams in the near-field of the array. The paper analytically derives the proposed signal processing approach, and then verifies it via simulated and experimental data in a laboratory environment with scientific equipment assembled for this purpose.
