This paper describes a new radar sensor architecture comprising an array of transceiver modules. Target applications of the sensor are automotive driver assistance systems. In conjunction with a monolithic integration of each transceiver, the concept offers the possibility for a cost-effective realization of digital-beamforming radar sensors at millimeter-wave frequencies. A modulation sequence is investigated based on simultaneously transmitted frequency-modulated continuous-wave signals, which are separated by frequency multiplexing. Appropriate signal processing for the estimation of range, speed, and azimuth angle in multiple object situations is presented. Experimental results with an eight-channel radar sensor in the 76-77-GHz frequency band are presented, which demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed architecture and show the performance of the modulation sequence and signal processing.
