Signal Extraction and Target Detection for Localization by Radar

Conference paper

Abstract

Today information is often used to increase the probability of survival. Some thousands of years ago, it was perhaps needed to recognize a beast early enough to escape; today it is needed in many cases for collision avoidance. Information is only useful when it is available in sufficient time for a helpful reaction; that means sufficient to avoid collision. The range Re to detect an obstacle must be greater than the distance Rm hat is needed for collision avoidance
$${R_e} \geqslant {R_m}$$
. Rm depends on the velocity v and the time tr needed for reaction. If we say in a simplified way Rm = v tr, then the necessary value of Re increases with growing velocity v.
