Autonomous vehicles have an essential role to play in the future of safe mobility. Highly sensitive and powerful radar and sensor systems make it possible for these vehicles to perceive the world around them. However, the ubiquity of radar signals increases the demand on these critical systems.
In a driving scenario where a vehicle is faced with many competing radar signals, such as in city traffic, radar receivers could be disrupted by the interference. This multiagency project, which ran from November 2018 to October 2021, researched methods to detect and counteract the effects of radar interference in autonomous vehicles.
The methods developed are effective in a variety of driving scenarios and will significantly increase the safety and efficiency of the autonomous vehicles of tomorrow.
