repurpose automotive radar for UAV/UGV

Started this discussion. Last reply by KCMastaPeace Feb 22. 32 Replies

Hello, I was interested in trying an automotive radar for collision avoidance on a UGV. Automotive radar should be cheaper than LIDAR due to scale production and no moving parts, and requires less…Continue

APMRover2 simulation with MORSE

Hello.I set myself a challenge of hooking up APMRover2 to a car simulated in MORSE and it seems to work so I thought I'd write about it. Might be interesting to someone.MORSE is a robot simulator based on Blender's Game Engine. MORSE is different to JSBSim in that it has rigid body physics (though I never ran JSBSim, I didn't find anything about collision support).Here's a video of the simulation. The source is…See More

"KCMastaPeace, That was extremely helpful! I myself do not have any ongoing projects involving radar, but am very eager to learn about it.  What I think is important is two points. First, one need to know the 'hackability' of these…"

"I haven't worked on this in a long time. As pointed out by James M earlier, the firmware on the radar used in the ohio university thesis is surely not the same as the firmware in the audi part."

"You're right. It seems to be very hard to get those automotive radars working out of the car. What I've read so far (and what it makes it even more difficult) is the fact, that audi (where the sensors used here come from) have component…"

James M replied to zach w's discussion repurpose automotive radar for UAV/UGV
"You're correct that there is some limited self correction functionality, but the sensor has no way of knowing where it is and where it's pointed. It needs to be told these things via diagnostic commands which are either executed at the end…"
