Nowadays, many practical radar applications require an automatic interpretation of the received data, including data processing algorithms and target classification. The exploitation of additional polarimetric information is a very promising concept to improve the performance of automotive target classification. In this thesis work, we aim to...

Recent advances in Multi-Function Radar (MFR) systems led to an increase in their degrees of freedom. As a result, modern MFR systems are capable of adjusting many parameters during runtime. An automatic adaptation of the radar system to changing situations, like weather conditions, interference, or target maneuvers, is often mentioned in the...

There is a growing demand for detailed and accurate landslide maps and inventories worldwide. The mapping of landslides is essential for emergency response, disaster mitigation and a better understanding of landslides. Currently, it is still difficult to detect the timing and extent of landslides accurately through satellite imagery. Most often...

Performing joint tracking and classification is the ultimate goal for many radar-based applications. For example, in indoor monitoring scenario, it is important to know the target's position as well as the related activities performed by that target. However, the literature often treats the joint problem independently due to its complexity. As a...

Nowadays, radar has been applied to human activity classification in the aging-in-place for health monitoring. The complex-valued neural networks (CVNNs) have been only minimally explored, especially on complex-valued radar signals, and there is an outstanding question on whether CVNNs can contribute to improving classification performance. This...

Landmines and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are among the most dangerous weapons found in (former) conflict areas. Many of them have only minimal or even no metal built in making it difficult to detect such devices via conventional metal detectors. Thus, alternative methods such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) are deployed for this...

THz time-domain systems driven by photoconductive antennas (PCAs) promise a bandwidth of the order of hundreds of GHz. This characteristic can be utilized to build see-through radars with sub-mm resolution and a field of view comparable to the current mm-wave radars at a relatively low cost. These radars can solve the issues in the field of...

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred to as drones have gained increasing popularity with current technological breakthroughs. Recent reports indicate the number of registered drones in the United States have crossed 850,000 and is expected to increase multi-fold over the coming years. The widespread applications of drones include...

A big catalyst of the AI revolution has been Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), abstract computation models based on the biological neural networks in the brain. However, they require an immense amount of computational resources and power to configure and when deployed often are dependent on cloud resources to function. This makes ANNs less...

The development of Smart Vehicles (SV) has increased the demand for secure and intelligent sensors. The automotive radar plays a massive role in improving the security of these vehicles. Radar needs to make fast and accurate detection in a noisy environment while being aware of its surroundings. The modern radar systems deployed on the SVs...

In today's automotive applications, radar is widely used to estimate the target position and velocity with respect to the radar position. Estimating the position of the target in terms of range and velocity is fairly advanced and accurate. However, resolving two closely spaced targets in the azimuth domain which have the same range and relative...

In the arctic region many coastal areas exhibit rapid erosion, with coastal retreat or erosion rates of 10 meters per year (m/yr.) or higher in places. This poses a threat primarily to all manner of infrastructure built directly on and near the coastline. With climate change the coastal erosion is expected to increase. This effect is expected to...

Due to the rising number of wireless device users, it is expected that there will be a scarcity in the spectrum. The will especially true for the Automotive Spectrum between 77 and 81 GHz. In this thesis, we apply Sensor Management to the Joint Radar Communication scenario. We develop an algorithm that can allocate resources to both sensing and...

Accurate short-term forecasts, also known as nowcasts, of heavy precipitation are desirable for creating early warning systems for extreme weather and its consequences, e.g. urban flooding. In this research, we explore the use of machine learning for short-term prediction of heavy summer rainfall showers in the Netherlands. We explore the use of...

There is an increasing demand for a highly accurate weather system on the runway for early detection and warning of severe weather phenomena. Due to the high performances of a phased array radar system in terms of time-resolution and elevation-resolution, an already existing fast-rotating phased array radar, 60 RPM, is studied to find the...

The accurate estimation of the pose, i.e. position and heading, of a vehicle while driving is of high importance in autonomous driving applications. Right now the main tool to estimate the location of a vehicle is its GPS sensor. However, GPS data is known to be of very low accuracy, especially in urban environments, and is thus not ideal for...

With modern multi-function radars becoming more flexible, handling the limited amount of resources of these radars becomes increasingly important. In this thesis the radar resource management (RRM) problem in a multi-target tracking scenario is considered. Partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs) are used to describe each tracking...

In order to ensure safety and prevent collisions on road, automotive radars must be fault proof and have to be tested on reliability and performance, which requires proper diagnostic of well-functioning of the radar so that the car may participate to traffic. One way of the diagnostic of well-functioning of the automotive radar is by means of...
