Empirical Study on Ultra-Wideband Vehicle Radar
High range-resolution radar using ultra wideband radio attracts considerable attention as a short range automotive radar. Radar echo from a target often contains unwanted echoes called as clutter, which make it difficult to detect the target. In order to suppress the clutter, therefore, it is important to investigate the clutter distribution and to develop the clutter model. In this paper, traffic road clutter is measured and characterized for various bandwidths from 10MHz to 5GHz. It is also quantitatively compared with the model of log-normal, Weibull and log-Weibull.
