Intern, Use of automotive radar for communication and sensing

Network Division | Mountain View, CA | Internship

Job Description

Job Summary:

The objective of this internship is to provide the intern with opportunities to study the generalized use of radar equipment for communication and sensing. The study will include performing a state-of-the-art survey of dual use of radar equipment contrasting the dual waveform and time-sharing methods; searching, comparing and identifying potential off-the-shelf experimental equipment and initiating a system-level integration work based on the system designed in cooperation with researchers in Toyota InfoTechnology Center. If time permits, academic publication(s) based on the output of the internship will be considered.

General Outcome Expectations:

  • The potential research area may include, but not limited to:

  • Generalized use of radar equipment for communication and sensing for information sharing needs of future generation automated vehicles
    • Survey of dual use of radar equipment and qualitative comparison of dual-waveform and time-sharing techniques
