Abstract

In this paper, we discuss a Spread Spectrum based radar system for car detection in the road and autonomous guidance of vehicles. An autonomous intelligent vehicle has to perform a number of functionalities. Segmentation of the road, determining the boundaries to drive in and recognizing the vehicles and obstacles around are the main tasks for vision guided vehicle navigation. In this article we propose a set of algorithms which lead to the solution of road and vehicle collision using carrier recovery method from car velocity using DSSS RADAR. In such a spread spectrum system, the transmitted signal is spread over a larger bandwidth, which is much wider than the minimum bandwidth required to transmit the information. Automotive radar systems can take advantage of spread spectrum techniques because of their interference rejection, immunity from noise and multipath distortion, and high resolution ranging properties. In addition, there is no need for high-speed, fast-settling frequency synthesizers. Moreover, spread spectrum techniques can improve the reliability of automotive radars. The data from different sensors on different cars can be combined in order to observe the complete car environment. Thus a spread spectrum radar system will allow sharing the same bandwidth also for data link needed by car-to-car communication systems. The algorithm described here is to recover Doppler frequency using 2P power method from which we are able to detect the vehicle condition in road.
