Industrial Talk on Next-generation Radar Systems for Security and Safety


IEEE joint chapter of Circuits & Systems and Computer, Windsor Section invites Dr. Sutharsan Sivagnanam, Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company at the Research and Innovation Center, Dearborn, MI, to have a seminar on Next-generation Radar Systems for Security and Safety. 

The next generation digital radars become feasible with the advancement of recent hardware technologies. The digital radar systems are combining solid-state electronic modules, advanced digital signal processors, and complex A-D converters to give the best possible capability in scalable, reliable and affordable packages. Therefore, digital radar systems have been widely adopted into several new areas, particularly commercial and public domain.

Topic:

Next-generation Radar Systems for Security and Safety

The next generation digital radars become feasible with the advancement of recent hardware technologies. The digital radar systems are combining solid-state electronic modules, advanced digital signal processors, and complex A-D converters to give the best possible capability in scalable, reliable and affordable packages. Therefore, digital radar systems have been widely adopted into several new areas, particularly commercial and public domain.


This talk presents the usage of next-generation radar systems in a broad range of security and safety applications. This includes an overview of digital radar systems with a comparison to conventional analog radar systems. In addition, it explains several types of radars and a brief introduction to radar signal and data processing techniques associated with the respective applications. A personal view of practical difficulties and possible approaches to overcome such obstacles from practical perspective will be analyzed. Moreover, the software development challenges, computational complexity of advanced algorithms and hardware limitations will also be discussed.

Biography:

Dr. Sutharsan Sivagnanam is a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company at the Research and Innovation Center, Dearborn, MI. His current research group aims the development of driver assist technologies that leads to autonomous driving capabilities. Prior to joining Ford Motors, he was with FLIR Radar Systems, where he involved in the development of next-generation surveillance radar systems. In addition, he is an adjunct professor at Concordia University and has taught graduate and undergraduate courses at the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Sutharsan received the B.Sc. degree in computer engineering from the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, in 2002. In 2003, he moved to Canada to pursue his postgraduate studies on radar signal and data processing. He has received the M.A.Sc and Ph.D degrees from McMaster University, Hamilton, On, Canada, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. From Sep. 2009 to Apr. 2010, he was working as a postdoctoral fellow at McMaster University. His research interests include state estimation, target detection and tracking, radar signal processing, target classification, sensor and data fusion, non-linear filtering and decision support system.
