Ultra-wideband has been first developed for military applications for secure communication and was standardized by IEEE already more than a decade ago. Recently, there has been a renewed interest in ultra-wideband based data communication and localization for smartphones.
This raises the question: “Can we use Ultra-wideband communication signals and transceivers for opportunistic radar applications?”. During your thesis, you play an essential role in answering this question from a technical perspective. One of the major technical challenges is expected to be TX-RX crosstalk and LO leakage. You will analyse and develop architectures and algorithms, all with the aim to mitigate the impact of crosstalk and LO leakage, while maximizing sensitivity. You will deliver a comprehensive model and algorithm(s) in either Matlab or Python complete with documentation. A publication at scientific conference/journal is always a possibility, depending on the duration, quality and novelty of the work.
This project builds on expertise of the Internet of Things Radio team. Support in this project comes from a multi-disciplinary team with expertise from IC and digital hardware design to algorithm development and applications.
