Design, Analyze, and Implement Radar Sensors’ Alignment Algorithm with MATLAB

Liang Ma, Delphi

Radar sensors can detect a target’s range, range rate, and azimuth in the vehicle coordinate system (VCS) to enable adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and other features. To obtain accurate target properties, a radar’s boresight should match the designed pointing angle in the VCS; misalignment of the boresight can become result in errors on azimuth that must be compensated to achieve accurate target lateral offset in the VCS. Delphi designed a least-squares solver in MATLAB to compute misalignment angles and analyze vehicle testing logs, and generated production code with MATLAB Coder.
