I would like to know the algorithms to get the angle, range, distance.. so I'm planning to do antenna tracking. What should I do in basic steps to track objects using that module ?

what algorithms are used in automobile radar ?

  • $\begingroup$ some auto radars are monopulse. the company that makes the module should have sales and support engineers that support using their products. This isnt a customer support web site. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @StanleyPawlukiewicz I'm not looking for support, I'm looking on what are the algorithms that are used to use that module ? $\endgroup$ May 17, 2018 at 16:45
  • $\begingroup$ Actually you are asking for support. If you asked “what algorithms are used in automobile radar” it would be valid. When you bring a specific product into your question, it is a customer support issue. Ask them. They want to sell their parts. They designed it a certain way for a reason. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


The one system that I know of that is used on large trucks is mono pulse. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monopulse_radar

The segment is very cost sensitive, so you’re not going to see much that wasn’t invented at least 50 years ago but given that Deep Learning is being thrown at every problem under the sun....

I would think that Continuous Wave would have some use.

My understanding is that multiple sensors of type and purpose are used, so elaborating on the specific application would generate more specific responses.

As an example, the RADAR I looked at, was to help in lane changes. It didn’t need much in the way of range. A system for braking would have other characteristics.
