Description We have developeed a new way to form a high quality radar image of the road in front of a moving vehicle. We have extended this technique to objects that are moving in the scene ahead of the vehicle. We have also developed a new way of improving the radar image (which works in all weathers) by combining it with video data (in good weather).
Exploitation Route The tevhniques have the potential to improve the sensing capability of future autonomous systems from driverless cars to aircraft landing systems.

Title A Radar system for use in a vehicle 
Description An image processor (18,Fig.12a), system, or method for generating a radar image of a scene ahead or behind a direction of travel of a vehicle (10,Fig.12a). The scene comprises one or more radar reflective objects (16,Fig.12a). A radar scan is received at each of a plurality of different positions along the direction of travel of the vehicle. The radar scans are sequentially received as the vehicle travels along the direction of travel, whereby to provide a plurality of radar scans which define a synthetic aperture. The invention further comprises synthetic aperture radar processing means (18,Fig.12a) to combine each of the plurality of radar scans, whereby each radar scan comprises a plurality of radar signals for each of a plurality of different angular beam directions of a radar transmitting means or of the radar receiving means of the radar system, relative to the scene. The synthetic aperture radar processing means further generates a radar image of the scene ahead of or behind the direction of travel of the vehicle based on the combined plurality of radar scans across the synthetic aperture. This invention relates to both Spot and Strip SAR techniques.
