Multiple Target Tracking using FMCW Radar

Michael Raymond

Abstract


This report details the implementation of a multiple-target tracking simulation for a
frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar network, using multiple highway
based scenarios. The simulated FMCW radar provides a maximum range of 200m with
a range resolution of 0.7m. The project provides a simulation platform using multiple
scenarios with increasing tracking difficulty. Beginning with tracking a single target and
progressing to multiple targets crossing through the same radar relative range.
Historically, the latter scenario produces real world target errors as a consequence of
incorrect target processing and the region of ambiguity unavoidable within FMCW
radar. This project successfully provides a simulation platform for multi-tracking
FMCW radar solutions and evaluates the performance of the simulated radar tracking
system.
