Celebrating a Fiesta of Radar Innovations involving the latest radar technologies through plenary talks, special sessions, tutorials, and the radar summer school.
Tuesday May 02, 2023 (14:50 - 16:20) - Talk by Safa Ali: FMCW Radar Sensing for Indoor Drones Using Variational Auto-Encoders
This paper investigates unsupervised learning of low-dimensional representations from FMCW radar data, which can be used for multiple downstream tasks in a drone navigation context. To this end, we release a first-of-its-kind dataset of raw radar ADC data recorded from a radar mounted on a flying drone in an indoor environment, together with ground truth detection targets. We show that, by utilizing our learned representations, we match the performance of conventional radar processing techniques while training our models on different input modalities such as range-doppler maps, range-azimuth maps, or raw ADC samples of only two consecutively transmitted chirps.

The 2023 IEEE Radar Conference will be held at the River Walk in San Antonio, Texas for the first time, jointly sponsored by the Aerospace & Electronics Systems Society (AESS) and the IEEE Lone Star Section, with significant support from the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and Army Futures Command (AFC). The 2023 conference will celebrate a Fiesta of Radar Innovations involving the latest radar technologies through plenary talks, special sessions, tutorials, and the radar summer school. San Antonio is located in the heart of Texas within the United States and is known for an eclectic mix of Mexican, German, French, and Old West cultures that combine to create an “only in San Antonio” experience.
